10 Reasons to See D.C. United Play at Audi Field



D.C. United and Audi Field are the place to be for Major League Soccer in Washington, DC

Washington, DC is a bona fide sports town, and with four Major League Soccer (MLS) Cups to its name, D.C. United are one of the winningest teams not just in the District, but in the MLS.

 

Unlike the "Washington" sports teams in the city, United are the only team that identifies as being from "DC," a nod to the team’s dedication and commitment to the city. As such, going to a DCU game feels like being a part of the local fabric – and this couldn’t be more true given Audi Field's location, which straddles two exciting neighborhoods, Capitol Riverfront (Navy Yard & Buzzard Point) and Southwest (The Wharf). From cheering on a fun and exciting team to all-inclusive food and beverage options, there are plenty of reasons to hop on the D.C. United bandwagon and get tickets today.

01

D.C. United are the most decorated team in MLS history and are looking for more

D.C. United are led by new Greek forward Taxiarchis “Taxi” Fountas who is putting together one of the most impressive MLS debuts in league history with 5 goals and 2 assists in his first 5 games. With a veteran core of players in goalkeeper Bill Hamid, center back and captain Steven Birnbaum, and prolific MLS scorer Ola Kamara combined with young talent in Homegrown midfielders Griffin Yow and Jackson Hopkins, D.C. United are brimming with potential for the 2022 season. Come visit D.C. United’s new soccer-specific stadium at Audi Field in Southwest DC to get an up-close view of the action in one of the best soccer experiences in MLS!

Sit with the day-one die-hards

Discover the Real DC - The most exciting sports and entertainment in the nation’s capital

The move to Audi Field signified the first time the team's die-hard Supporters could cheer on DCU in a stadium built for soccer. The Chico Stand (Sections 136 & 137) - as it is affectionately known in memory of lifelong D.C. United fan Chico Solares - is located in the north end zone and is a place for all supporters who want to stand, sing, and passionately support the Black-and-Red. The Supporters Section offers general admission tickets with a full-on expectation to scream out team chants (in English and Spanish), stand all game long and of course, wear team colors Black-and-Red. And about your clothes, fair warning, they might end up covered in beer as it's tradition to toss half-full plastic cups and tall-boy cans in the stands after a United goal. Forget the bandwagon – prove you have what it takes and join the legendary “Chico Stand”.

03

Audi Field's seat views are spectacular

Cheer on the Black-and-Red along with a capacity crowd of 20,000 while enjoying a great seat, regardless of where you are. That’s because Audi Field’s proximity to the pitch is the closest in all of MLS. Sections of the front row are a mere eight feet from the action, and you don't need front-row seats to take it in. You can enjoy the view when buying concessions or walking to a different part of the stadium. And thanks to the high-angle stands, fans in far-back rows can still expect an intimate match experience.

04

Make your dreams a reality with a curated group experience

DC United - Mascot

Whether you’re looking to have a Birthday party, Girls Night Out, Team Building, 3-Day Conference, or a Bachelor party – D.C. United and Audi Field have the spaces and the curators to build a customized experience that will be remembered for a lifetime. Groups can reserve an entire section in the stands or a VIP party suite just feet from the game action. Some of the most recent groups have chosen to go on the field after the game for a photo with Talon, high-five the team as they enter the field, play a soccer match on the field after the DCU game, and/or have personalized D.C. United premium items like wine glasses or backpacks. Essentially, if you can dream it, D.C. United and Audi Field will work to make it a reality!

05

The pre-match vibe and sunset are all a fan could ask for

Audi Field

If you want to attend a memorable sporting event, there has to be more than just the competition. That’s what Party at the Pitch is all about – just South of Gate A, it serves as a gathering place for fans prior to the match with food trucks, corn hole, giant Jenga, sign-making, and drinks. If you’re looking for a rooftop drink spot with one of the best sunset views in DC, look no further than Heineken Rooftop, open to all fans.

06

There’s a ticket for every type of fan

When it comes to getting into the stadium, you can’t beat single-game weeknight tickets, which provide incredible value for a professional sporting event. The supporters’ seats with the team’s lively fan clubs are great if you want to burn some energy, while the west sideline seats are among the most popular among fans. On the high-end, premium club seats provide VIP access to lounges and the rooftop patio, as well as all-inclusive food and drinks (beer & wine). The stadium accommodates groups, families and single-game buyers as well. Find tickets right now.

07

Dig into pupusas, arepas, empanadas, and more

Audi Field Food

Part of what makes DC’s restaurant scene so popular is all the unique international eats, some of which you’ll find at a D.C. United game. Footy-loving foodies can tuck into pupusas – a Salvadoran specialty consisting of meat- and cheese-stuffed thick corn tortillas with slaw on the side – served by the same family-run outfit that’s been feeding fans since the team’s RFK days. Line up at the Arepa Zone for a Venezuelan-style corn cake sandwich made with plantains, shredded meats, black beans and more. Local Food Truck, brick-oven pizzas, and traditional stadium fare at Audi Field are some of the best amongst live events in DC!

08

It’s easy to get to Audi Field by Metro, scooter, bike, or water taxi

Scooter outside of Audi Field

In case you haven’t heard, DC is very walkable. That’s good to know before taking the short 10-minute stroll from the nearby Navy Yard Metro stop on the Green Line – the easiest way to get to the stadium. Cyclists can also pedal up to Audi Field in style and lock up their two-wheelers with the free on-site bike valet or bike parking at the southwest corner of the stadium. If traveling by car, your Lyft or Uber can drop you off at the stadium. If you need to park a car, find one nearby Audi Field parking spots from SpotHero. You can even hop on a water taxi bound for The Wharf and voyage to the game if you’re coming from Alexandria, Georgetown or National Harbor – but again, remember to don your trainers back on dry land as the stadium is just over a mile walk from The Wharf’s Transit Pier. Parking prices all over DC have gone up due to new development and scarcity of spots, so taking advantage of the plethora of options outside of driving is highly recommended.

09

Get the latest D.C. United jersey or streetwear collections

DC United Jersey

Show your support for the Black-and-Red at Audi Field's Stadium Club Shop. Said to be one of the MLS’ largest shops, this fan utopia has all the swag you could want. Grab a D.C. United Scarf before catching the second half or support your favorite player by grabbing a new Adidas 2022 authentic kit.

There's so much to do in the neighborhood before and after the game

Capitol Riverfront

@TheYardsDC

Unlike a lot of sports venues, one major benefit to Audi Field is that it’s located smack dab in the middle of two of the city’s most popular waterfront destinations. There are so many things you could do in Capitol Riverfront, from a brewery tour or grabbing ice cream to going stand-up paddleboarding or crafting your own soccer-baseball double-header on Washington Nationals game days. To the west of the stadium, you’ll stumble upon The Wharf, home to The Anthem music venue, the longest continually operating open-air fish market in the country, hot restaurants and shopping.
