Audi Field is a soccer-specific stadium under construction in Buzzard Point in Washington, D.C. It will be the home stadium for the D.C. United team of Major League Soccer, and will seat 20,000 people. Previously, D.C. United had explored sites in the Washington metropolitan area. Following the failure of an initial stadium proposal in 2006, D.C. United made two additional stadium proposals that also failed to be built. In January 2011, the club explored using previously-unused land at Buzzard Point to build a stadium; this was confirmed in July 2013, when Buzzard Point was officially announced as the stadium location. The ground-breaking ceremony happened in February 2017, with a planned schedule to complete construction in June 2018. On February 15, 2017, German automobile manufacturer Audi and D.C. United announced a “long-term” naming rights deal for the new stadium.
