Loudoun United have announced Segra will be the naming rights partner of the new multi-purpose stadium in Leesburg, Va., now officially named Segra Field. The naming rights partnership is a seven-and-a-half year deal going through 2026. 

“There are many pieces to the puzzle that is building a brand new soccer club and stadium from the ground level. Creating strong partnerships from the beginning is a key piece to long term success,” said Adam Behnke, Loudoun United Chief Operating Officer, said. “Partnering with Segra is a win for all of us. It opens the door for the future growth of both Loudoun United FC and Segra within the rapidly growing business community in Loudoun County. Segra is making an investment and expanding into Loudoun and Northern Virginia, providing a state-of-the-art fiber network that will improve connectivity for established and new businesses alike while also furthering our economic development efforts. We are thrilled for the partnership and look forward to growing together to make a lasting impact in our community via this legacy project.”

Segra Field will be the home of Loudoun United, the first professional soccer team in Loudoun County. Opening in August, the stadium will also host a variety of other sporting events, community activities, and concerts. The stadium and event space on site will make it a 365-day destination for fans and Loudoun County residents.

The new facility will seat 5,000 people and will have eight luxury suites, seating 24 each. The stadium will feature food and drink vendors from the local Loudoun area, creating a friendly experience for fans.
