Segra Field is a soccer-specific stadium in Leesburg, Virginia and the home of Loudoun United FC of the USL Championship.[1][2]

The stadium is located within Phillip A. Bolen Park, and adjacent to Loudoun Soccer Park. In addition to the stadium, a training facility, and team offices for D.C. United of MLS and youth development academy will be housed there. The project was supposed to be completed in time for the 2019 USL season, but the completion date was moved to August 2019 due to zoning issues.[3] The stadium is now expected to be finished by August 9, 2019, as Loudoun United FC will play against Charlotte Independence at the new stadium. On July 8, 2019, it was announced that Segra, an independent fiber bandwidth company, has signed a multi-year agreement to become the naming-rights partner for the stadium.[4]
