Shaw Field is a 1,625-seat soccer-specific stadium in Washington, D.C.. It is home to the Georgetown Hoyas men's and women's soccer teams. The facility opened in 1996, but the teams didn't start playing games on it until 2001. The field has a natural grass surface.[1]

Helicopter delays[edit]

As a result of the helipad for Georgetown MedStar Hospital being located directly behind the west-end goal, and for safety reasons, the game must be delayed whenever a medical helicopter is arriving.[2]

History[edit]

In the summer of 2012, Shaw Field underwent major renovations. The improvements included a new scoreboard, a new grandstand, as well as other aspects of the stadium.[1] In March 2015, the Argentina national team trained at Shaw Field in preparation for a friendly match at nearby FedExField.[3]
