In doing so, they become the first top-flight team in any sport to play a regular season game in Loudoun, furthering our growth as a soccer destination,” Loudoun Economic Development Executive Director Buddy Rizer said.
“We commend the organization for prioritizing fan safety, taking the ‘Loudoun Is Ready’ pledge, and even making the difficult decision to play without fans at the stadium. This is the first of what we hope will be many Spirit games at Segra Field, as we work towards a bright, #LoudounPossible future.”
