If you don't know by now we call the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) area home. The DMV is home to many different attractions and distractions. You have the landmarks of the capitol Washington D.C. the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley in VA, and the amazing seafood beach fronts of MD. This is but a small portion of what the DMV has to offer.
With all of these distractions it can be a shock to someone not from the area to learn that the DMV is also a major football hub. The DMV offers one of the most diverse epicenters in the world and with this diversity football came with it. It isn't hard to find a football pitch or a tennis court to see some footballers displaying their skills so here we mention five locations in the DMV where you can find some football.
1. Fields at RFK
Address: The Fields at RFK Campus, 401 Oklahoma Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002
The Fields at RFK are fairly new being part of a renovation project for that part of Northeast DC. Unfortunately the RFK stadium itself is now defunct but it still makes for an imposing landmark on the horizon and is great for nostalgia purposes if you had the chance to catch a game before it’s defunct status. These fields yell football adding multiple professional sized turf fields for you to tear it up in. Parking here is in abundance to the point where you’ll have to sharpen your decision making skills. There’s also a children’s park for your little ones to run around while you showcase those footballing talents. The Fields is supposedly dog friendly as well, just make sure you keep them off the turf.
4/5 (Got caught by a speeding cam on my way here, watch out for those)
2. Long Bridge Park
3. Sofive Rockville
We’re keeping the trend of fairly new locations in this article. We discovered Sofive not too long ago and for good reason. These locations are starting to pop up all over the east coast and we hope they continue to grow. The Rockville location looked as if it had an endless amount of small sided pitches perfect for 5v5 (hence the name). The facility is also hooked up with multiple TVs so you can catch some professional matches and even a bar (can’t remember if they served alcohol or not). It’s a great place to bring a couple of friends and rent a field for an hour or two or come to one of their pickup sessions and see how many ankles you can break.
5/5 (Hopefully the pandemic hasn’t killed too much business)

5. Barcroft Park
