RFK Stadium Information

RFK Stadium - Concert Venue | Stadium in Washington, DC.

Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, built in 1961, was designed to accommodate both baseball and football games. Over the years, it has been home to many teams, including the NFL’s Washington Redskins and MLB’s Washington Nationals. Both teams have moved on, and currently the stadium’s main team is the DC United soccer team, a member of the MLS. Though soccer matches now dominate RFK Stadium, an annual college football bowl game, the Military Bowl, is played here in December.

The circular stadium has a capacity of 46,000, though most soccer matches do not make use of upper-deck seating. Luxury suites are available for groups, and concessions at RFK Stadium include the usual grill, BBQ, and beer vendors. Tailgating occurs before most matches, with a variety of food and booze vendors dotting the parking lots.

Concerts at RFK Stadium include the annual DC101 Chili Cook-Off Concerts and the Spring Jam Festival. Big names like T-Pain often play the stadium as well. RFK Stadium’s concert history includes many legends, including the Rolling Stones, U2, and one of the last concerts played by the Beatles.

Its an OK stadium
Jody P. Dec 1, 2012
I've actually never been to RFK for a sporting event but i've been there for a bunch of concerts. I used to go there for HFStival back in the day. The stadium itself is fine. In my opinion, nothing special. They are pretty organized about getting people through security and into the stadium for events, which is nice. I imagine the setup is different for concerts than for sporting events, but during festivals, there would be a main stage and several side stages as well as different vendors spread around the stadium. It was a pretty easy stadium to navigate and also easy to get to by public transportation. I've never driven there so I can't really speak to parking. Anyway, I could give or take this stadium.
Fun place to watch soccer, but DC United needs a new stadium
Chris M. Aug 15, 2012
RFK is a lot of fun. You've got Barra Brava causing the entire bleacher section to bounce, you've got the Screaming Eagles doing there thing when D.C. United is playing. The stadium is easy to get to and from on the Metro unless the crowd is particularly big. But come on DC, United needs a new stadium. RFK is old and feels like it. It was built for baseball resulting in an awkwardly massive area behind one goal and a gigantic wall. Fans are too far away from the game in a lot of cases, the upper deck is empty, and the crowd noise dissipates to easily. D.C. United fans are great and if they had a soccer-specific stadium like so many other MLS teams now do the atmosphere would be even better. Let's get a stadium in DC (not in some distant MD suburb) for the one team in DC that has had any success in the last 15 years.
