Just near the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C., RFK Stadium is home to D.C. United of Major League Soccer (MLS) and also frequently hosts the U.S.A.’s men’s national soccer team. Since opening over 50 years ago, RFK Stadium was the longtime home of the NFL’s Washington Redskins (1961 – 1996) before the team moved to nearby FedEx Field. It also hosted the MLB’s (American League) Washington Senators from 1962 to 1971 until the team moved west and became the Texas Rangers. With a lease lasting until 2038, RFK Stadium will certainly be rocking for years to come, and this guide will help you with parking, directions and more to help you enjoy your time at this legendary venue.
