RFK Stadium History

For more than five decades, RFK Stadium has been the backdrop for some of the biggest football games in the country as the home to the Washington Redskins of the NFL, delivering a steady stream of amazing match-ups from year to year. Named in honor of legendary civil rights activist and politician Robert F. Kennedy, RFK Stadium is the perfect place to head out and get knee-deep in the nail-biting football excitement, as the NFL is one of those spectator sports that dwarfs the TV watching experience once you get a chance to see the drama unfold first-hand. As soon as you're there watching the big game the way it was meant to be seen, you'll understand why RFK Stadium has become a staple of the local sports scene around the nation's capital.

Built in 1961 to serve as the home of the National Football League's Washington Redskins and Major League Baseball's Washington Centers, RFK Stadium became the home to DC United and the Major League Soccer team in 1996. After a three-decade hiatus, baseball returned to D.C. with the Washington Nationals, a team that prior to D.C. played in Montreal. RFK Stadium was renovated to meet the needs of the Washington Nationals where they played until the opening of the new Nationals Park in the spring of 2008. But this is a stadium that isn't only about football, as it's also hosted many big-time soccer games, Olympic events and plenty of others, making it sort of a jack of all trades when it comes to spectator sports.


RFK Stadium Events

Renowned as a venue that accommodates diverse events, RFK Stadium has hosted sports teams and major events like the EagleBank Bowl, games featuring the MLS' DC United, the Washington Redskins, the Washington Nationals, the Washington Senators, the Washington Freedom and plenty of others. It also held matches for the 1994 FIFA World Cup, the 1996 Summer Olympics, the 2003 Women's World Cup, MLS and MLB All-Star Games and, well, you can probably just go on considering the past. RFK has also held plenty of non-sports events as well, including concerts from world-class musicians like Billy Joel, Elton John, the Grateful Dead, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen.


Trivia

Did you know that Robert F. Kennedy Stadium has even held championship boxing matches?

As if there needed any further proof that this is one of the most diverse sports venues in the world, RFK Stadium has held some of the biggest boxing matches of the modern era as well. In 1993, Riddick Bowe knocked out Jesse Ferguson to help in maintain his title.
