Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, the historic DC sports venue that has entertained spectators with its crowd-pleasing sightlines since 1961, is affectionately known as “RFK” around the globe. The home turf for professional, collegiate and high school games during its history, RFK was the first major stadium designed specifically as a multisport facility for both football and baseball and is the current home for Major League Soccer’s D.C. United. RFK Stadium has hosted the U.S. Men's National Team more than any venue in the world and in 2013, RFK Stadium hosted the U.S. Men's National Team for the Centennial Celebration match against Germany.
In 2011, the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic®, an annual football game between two historically black colleges and universities, joined the diverse schedule of events at the stadium. Music fans have also been thrilled by performances under the stars at RFK by artists such as Foo Fighters, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, LL Cool J, Trouble Funk, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Elton John, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, U2, the Eagles and the Grateful Dead. An illustrious roster of legends have passed through the stadium doors, but the evidence shows, the future is as bright as ever.
