(April 4, 2013) – The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday to approve the request to build a privately financed 5,500-seat stadium 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.”
VIP Sports is looking to field a minor league baseball team, the Loudoun Hounds, in the independent Atlantic League and has a North American Soccer League franchise planned, the Virginia Cavalry. Play is hoped to start in 2014 but no timetable for the construction of the stadium has been released.
