Loudoun United signs naming-rights deal with Segra – report

United Soccer League Championship team Loudoun United has reportedly signed a stadium naming-rights deal with technology and communications company Segra.

The team’s new 5,000-seat soccer stadium in Leesburg, Virginia, will be known as Segra Field, according to the Washington Post. A press conference to announce the partnership is expected July 8.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. But they are believed among the highest for a naming-rights partnership in the USL Championship, which is the sanctioned second division on the US soccer pyramid.

Loudoun United is an affiliate team of Major League Soccer club DC United.

Segra Field will officially open on Aug. 9 with a USL Championship match between Loudoun United and Charlotte Independence. The new venue is the centrepiece of a multi-purpose complex that will also include DC United’s training centre, which is scheduled to open in early 2020.
