With the stadium floodlights shining down, the smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of thousands of fans roaring your name, walking onto the RFK field as a D.C. United player is a feeling that most people can only dream of experiencing...until now! The electricity and buzz felt by being a professional soccer player is now being encapsulated into an overnight residential camp at RFK Stadium.
The camp offers an unparalleled experience for boys aged 11-14 to scrimmage under the lights at RFK Stadium directly after D.C. United takes on Toronto FC on July 30th. The campers will also have the unique experience to camp in the stadium overnight and train the following morning under the guidance of D.C. United’s Academy coaching staff.
In addition to the scrimmage, training session and camping experience, registration includes a ticket to the D.C. United vs. Toronto FC match with additional tickets at $10, official D.C. United training gear (top & shorts), dinner in the stadium lounge, a coaching staff tactics talk and a First Team player appearance.
“The first time I played at RFK was my first ever start with the club," D.C. United Homegrown goalkeeper Bill Hamid said about the prospect of campers being able to play on the RFK pitch. "It was extremely nerve-wracking, but it’s honestly one of the best and most memorable experiences of my life. Many historic players have played here, and now I’ve gotten to share the field with them. It’s a unique opportunity that I’ll always remember.”
With the likes of club legends Jaime Moreno, John Harkes and Ben Olsen all making their mark on the field, it's now your chance. Spots are limited for the first ever Residential Camp at RFK Stadium! For further information and registration, please go to: //www.dcunited.com/camps/residential
