Tuesday, June 4 became a significant date in the young history of Virginia Cavalry FC as Bob Farren, founding CEO and President of the NASL club’s VIP Sports & Entertainment parent organization, broke ground on the new stadium site where the team will play in 2014.
The home of Cavalry FC and the Loudoun Hounds baseball club’s forthcoming stadium at One Loudoun is officially dubbed Edelman Financial Field.
“With the commencement of the stadium’s construction today, introducing Edelman Financial Field as the home of the Loudoun Hounds and Virginia Cavalry FC is an amazing validation of Loudoun County, the Hounds and Cavalry FC,” said Farren.
“When I first met with Ric Edelman about this possibility months ago, it was crystal clear how committed Ric and his firm are to the community. We look forward to a long partnership and are proud to call Edelman Financial Field our home.”
“We are now within sight of the finish line: Opening Day in 2014. I am thankful to our many wonderful business partners, our civic leaders and most importantly our legions of excited fans for making this sports landmark a reality in Loudoun.”
The Cavalry will commence play in the North American Soccer League in 2014, joining Indy Eleven and Ottawa Fury FC as new clubs making their debut in professional soccer.
Edelman Financial Services has signed a multiyear partnership for the naming rights with VIP Sports & Entertainment’s forthcoming venue.
Founded 25 years ago in Fairfax, Virginia, Edelman Financial Services LLC is now one of the nation’s largest financial planning and investment management firms in the country, employing hundreds of people in the area. CEO, Ric Edelman, has hosted a Saturday morning show for 21 years on WMAL Radio, as well as a weekly personal finance series airing locally on WETA. He was named three times by Barron’s as the nation’s #1 Independent Financial Advisor.
“This community is our home, and we are very grateful for the wonderful support we have received over the years,” Edelman said. “We want to demonstrate our thanks by helping to bring the ballpark to Northern Virginia, which will provide affordable family entertainment to the residents of our community.”
