Loudoun County Says 'YES" to the Hounds & Cavalry FC

Ashburn-based facility on track for a 2014 opening for baseball and soccer

Ashburn, VA – April 3, 2013 – Following this evening’s vote by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, professional baseball and soccer will come to Loudoun County, Virginia, in 2014. The Board voted to approve the request to build the privately financed facility in Ashburn within the One Loudoun development at the interchange of Route 7 and Loudoun County Parkway.

“Tonight’s strong vote of support is a testament to the level of support and desire to have professional sports to call our own in Northern Virginia and Loudoun County,” said Bob Farren, President and CEO of VIP Sports & Entertainment. “I want to profusely thank our fans who have supported us over these many years and I can’t wait to put a shovel in the ground and create a facility that will be a source of affordable, family fun for generations to come.”

In the coming weeks, VIP Sports & Entertainment will be announcing a number of additional events, ranging from Ballpark Groundbreaking to Hounds FanFest and Cavalry FC SoccerFests, in addition to other important announcements.

Farren concluded, “We are excited about our sports future with the Hounds and Cavalry FC. The ballpark will serve as a community gathering point and is another example of why Loudoun County is a great place for families and businesses alike.”
