Interview with NVU President, Liam Hogan

 The following excerpt is from Chris Kivlehan of

      " The Northern Virginia suburbs west of Washington D.C. are one of the most affluent areas in the country, and as such the region has been in the sights of professional soccer leagues for half a decade.   Loudoun County, Virginia is home to one of the nation’s busiest airports, Washington Dulles, and a significant portion of “the Cloud.”  The county is one of the largest data center hubs in the country, and odds are that a good percentage of the information you upload and download online each day is physically stored in Loudoun or neighboring Fairfax County.  

                    The Virginia Cavalry were planned to bring professional soccer to Loudoun County in 2014, but plans for a new ballpark to be shared with an Atlantic League baseball team derailed.  D.C. United is reportedly eyeing up Loudoun County for its MLS-2 team in USL.  However, residents of the area do not have to wait until for  DC-2 to enjoy a high level of soccer.  Leesburg-based Northern Virginia United will begin play in the National Premier Soccer League this year, will plan to offer a supporter-owned structure that will make the club something area residents can truly call their own.  Their crest reflects the area’s aviation history and status as an Internet hub.
