Virginia Beach City FC to Play 2019 Home Matches at Powhatan Field
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. (March 1, 2018) — Virginia Beach City FC will play all of its 2019 home matches at Powhatan Field, a premier sports stadium in Norfolk, VA.
Powhatan Field was constructed in August 2008 as a multipurpose facility, hosting all forms of sports to include college and now professional soccer. A new turf field was installed in the summer of 2018, giving VB City FC a first-class pitch.
“One of the improvements for the players, it’s a brand-new turf field," said VB City FC Owner, President and CEO Steven Wagoner. "That will obviously be safer, but I think the quality of the pitches is going to be good for us."
The stadium holds 2,800 seats and the layout allows VB City FC to provide fans with a deeper and superior match-day experience.
"The other things, it has full seating around the field, so we can have an intimate fan experience. Food trucks, live music and more of a festival style event before each home game. These are all things we’re now able to do to help build the fan experience," Wagoner said.
Moving to Powhatan Field in Norfolk, VA. will provide VB City FC fans across the region easier access to see Virginia Beach City FC play their first professional season in the team's history.
"Whether it’s Hampton, Newport News, Suffolk, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, it’s right in the middle," Wagoner said.
