Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium
Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium (or RFK Stadium) is a multi-purpose venue. It opened in 1961 as the District of Columbia Stadium (often being called the D.C. Stadium) and was home to the Washington Redskins for 36 years. It took on its current name in 1969, in memory of Robert F. Kennedy who had been assassinated the previous year.
More recently the venue's main use has switched to soccer. The RFK Stadium has become home to Major League Soccer (MLS) team D.C. United and is often used by the USA national team. It was used to host five matches during World Cup 1994, including a last-sixteen match.
