History and description

The stadium that now houses the Washington Redskins opened on October 1, 1961. It was originally named District of Columbia Stadium, but it was renamed Robert F. Kennedy Stadium in 1984. The stadium was designed to be able to host multiple sports, specifically American football and baseball matches, leading to its odd asymmetric shape.

This concept, also referred to as cookie-cutter stadiums, received a following in the next decades, however never to great success as the set-up offered only imperfect solutions for every sport. This was no different for RFK Stadium and the changing of configuration between different sports furthermore proved to be very costly.

Inaugurated in 1937, the stadium was home to the Washington Redskins (American football) team until 1996. Over the decade, several other American football, baseball, and soccer teams moved in and out of the stadium.

The 1994 World Cup was chosen as one of the playing venues of RFK Stadium, hosting four group matches and the round of 16 game between Spain and Switzerland (3-0).

In 1996, DC United moved into their current stadium, Audi Field. In 2012, they decided to close the upper deck of the stadium and thereby reduce capacity to 19,647 seats.

How to get to RFK Stadium

RFK Stadium is located east of Washington DC and near the Anacostia river. The stadium lies about a mile-and-a-half from Capitol Hill and slightly under 2 miles from Union Station. Drive east on East Capitol Street until you reach the stadium. RFK Stadium is located just west of the 295 freeway, which runs along the east of the city and connects with the I-95 (Capital Beltway) in the north and south. To get to the stadium, take the exit for East Capitol Street and drive east on East Capitol Street until you reach it.

If coming from the I-395 (Virginia), follow it into the city and continue in the left lane. Proceed straight ahead until signs will guide you to the stadium.

These include buses, the Metro, and bike share.

Metro station Stadium Armory is located near the stadium and is served by trains on the orange and blue line. Both lines run through downtown DC.

From Union Station, it is quicker to catch a bus that goes towards Stadium - Armory. One option is to take bus D6 from Massachusetts Ave and 2nd St NE. Get the bus in the direction of Stadium - Armory. The ride takes about 15 minutes.

An alternate route is bus 96, which you can catch in front of Union Station. Take the bus toward Capitol Heights Station and get off at the stadium.
