It's set to be an urban facility, state-of-the-art, with 31 luxury suites, showcasing a whopping 20,000-fan capacity, and complete with bike valet service and 500,000 square feet of retail space – and it's all coming to southwest D.C.'s newly developed waterfront for sporting, music and cultural events hosting galore. Introducing the new Audi Field.

For soccer fans and Audi enthusiasts alike, February 15, 2017 was one for the record books, with Audi extending its MLS sponsorship, of which Audi of America has been the official automotive sponsor since 2015, to include the most decorated franchise in U.S. soccer history and most successful professional team in the nation’s capital, D.C. United. In doing so, Audi became the official naming partner of the eponymous soccer club’s new Washington D.C. soccer stadium. And as "commitment[s] [that] help Audi connect with passionate soccer fans of all ages and the greater community" go, Loren Angelo, vice president of marketing for Audi of America, attests, it'll be one with the "unique experiences that elevate excitement in America's fastest-growing sport" in mind. Jason Levien, United Managing General Partner replied in kind, praising the automaker for "transcend[ing] the automobile industry and fully embrac[ing] the culture of soccer, especially in MLS," and "looking forward" to memorable experiences at Audi Field.

And as the field promises progressive mixed-use accessibility and a commitment to environmental sustainability, for which, upon completion, the facility is slated to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, we at Audi Des Moines think Audi Field sounds like someplace we're definitely going to check out. Time for a 2018 road trip!

It'll take a true road commander to help make that happen and our Johnston, IA showroom features the 2017 Audi Q3, Q5, Q7 SUV or A4 allroad wagon to get the job done. Stop by from Johnston, West Des Moines, Clive or Waukee and get behind the wheel for a test drive today!
