Loudoun United have announced their home stadium near Leesburg will be named Segra Field, after inking a naming-rights deal with the fiber optic network company.
“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,” stated Loudoun United Chief Operating Officer Adam Behnke. “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.”
The team’s first game in the stadium at Philip A. Bolen Memorial Park, which is still under construction, is scheduled for Aug. 9. The stadium will also host a variety of other sporting events, community activities, and concerts. The naming rights partnership is a seven-and-a-half year deal going through 2026.
The new complex will seat 5,000 people, and is planned to have eight luxury suites seating 24 each, along with concessions, vendors, and beer and wine.
“Segra is proud to partner with Loudoun United FC,” stated Segra Vice President of Marketing James Nester. “This is an exciting project for Loudoun and the region. We look forward to supporting soccer’s growth in the area, while further establishing our brand and helping drive economic development in Loudoun.”
