DC United Stadium – design description

The new stadium for DC United is planned at Buzzard Point, southern Washington. It’s the third location eyed by the club and has been under consideration since 2011. Progressing proved challenging due to ownership issues and construction of the new stadium is hoped to go forward with help of the city.

Together with acquiring land and creating a commercial hub adjacent to the stadium, the project is priced at some $300 million. The club declares to put forward half of the amount and finance the stadium, but counts on city with the remainder.

Since early design works the stadium was planned to represent a ‘European approach’, providing covered and enclosed seating bowl. Detailed renderings were presented in June 2014, soon before city council vote on the plan.
