RFK Stadium front-runner for U.S.-Germany

Barring late complications, the U.S. men’s national team friendly against Germany on June 2 will take place at Washington’s RFK Stadium, the Insider has learned. The U.S. Soccer Federation has also been considering FedEx Field in Landover, Md., and, in case a deal couldn’t be reached with the D.C. area venues, MT Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The match is tied to the USSF’s centennial celebration and would cap the federation’s annual general meeting, May 31-June 2 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.

Although a deal has not been finalized and an announcement may still be several weeks away, RFK has emerged as the clear front-runner, according to one source. The stadium’s soccer history and location inside the city worked to its advantage. Capacity of about 45,000 is also more in line with ticket-selling expectations than FedEx Field’s 79,000. The USSF staged a U.S.-Brazil friendly at FedEx last summer.

[In a poll posted in January, Insider readers voted overwhelmingly in favor of RFK over FedEx for the U.S.-Germany match.] Per a long-standing policy, the USSF will not comment on the proposed game until a contract is signed. However, the German federation (DFB) has already listed a U.S. tour, featuring friendlies against Ecuador on May 29 in Miami and the United States on June 2 in Washington.

Tickets for the US vs Germany are undoubtedly too hot and demands for it are too high. We are suggesting that you should buy USA vs Germany Soccer Tickets as early as now to secure premiere seats and avoid the inconvenience and hassle.
