Loudoun County Approves Ballpark Plan

Loudoun Hounds LogoPRESS RELEASE – Following this evening’s vote by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, professional baseball and soccer will come to Loudoun County, Virginia, in 2014. The Board voted unanimously to approve the request to build the privately financed facility in Ashburn within the One Loudoun development at the interchange of Route 7 and Loudoun County Parkway.

“Tonight’s strong vote of support is a testament to the level of support and desire to have professional sports to call our own in Northern Virginia and Loudoun County,” said Bob Farren, President and CEO of VIP Sports & Entertainment. “I want to profusely thank our fans who have supported us over these many years and I can’t wait to put a shovel in the ground and create a facility that will be a source of affordable, family fun for generations to come.”

In the coming weeks, VIP Sports & Entertainment will be announcing a number of additional events, ranging from Ballpark Groundbreaking to Hounds FanFest and Cavalry FC SoccerFests, in addition to other important announcements.

Farren concluded, “We are excited about our sports future with the Hounds and Cavalry FC. The ballpark will serve as a community gathering point and is another example of why Loudoun County is a great place for families and businesses alike.”

    Loudoun, Fredericksburg, and Virginia Beach don’t want to join the newly proposed Northern League? Wouldn’t blame them every current/past client this company says that they have been involved with don’t exist. Perhaps the NL bit off more than they can chew.

    Looks like the Atlantic league could grow by three teams in the next five years. Any word if the AtL plans on having another team in Texas? How long can you go with just Sugar Land especially now that the Astros want to move their Triple-A team just outside of Houston.

    Read in the local paper in Loudon County that the group NOW has to raise the money to build so in essence this is far from a done deal.

      Similar to the issues in Malden, great plan and they own the land, but no funds to build and no league to back em – I don’t see either of these getting done soon, if at all
