On Tuesday, D.C. United Managing Partner Jason Levien joined District officials at Nationals Park to publicly announce the Project Labor Agreement (PLA) reached for the construction of the club’s proposed stadium at Buzzard Point in Washington, D.C. The PLA provides the club with first priority employment and federal Davis-Bacon wage rates for District workers. The agreement also clears the path for local business participation.
FC Dallas has reached a long-term agreement with Toyota for naming rights to FC Dallas Stadium. The stadium is now known as Toyota Stadium and the 17 professional-quality fields adjacent to the stadium will be referred to as the Toyota Soccer Center.
“This is a monumental day for our organization,” said Dan Hunt, Vice President of Hunt Sports Group. “My entire family and I are so excited to be partnered with Toyota. I wish my father was alive today to see Toyota join FC Dallas in helping soccer grow across the Metroplex and Texas. This stadium complex was one of his favorite projects and will always be extra special to me as the last project I got to do with him before he passed. I know having such a wonderful partner as Toyota step up and put their name on it would make him proud.”
Toyota Stadium was the third soccer specific stadium constructed in the United States.
