With Catholic University getting a new field turf installed this summer, the Washington D.C. Current are taking the “Dojo” on the road and to the fans for its final two home games of the regular season.
With the season winding down and the Current preparing to make a historic playoff push the final games will be played in separate locations. As a team based in Washington D.C., the team brings in fans from the entire DMV area. As a result the organization wants to make the games more accessible to all ultimate fans.
May 21 vs. New York Rumble at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, VA.
To the original D.C. Current fans this should be a flashback down memory lane. In 2013, the franchise’s inaugural season, the Current played the Rumble (ironically) in a one-game playoff at the end of the regular season. In 22-20 win over New York D.C. launched into the conference championship for the team’s first playoff berth. This is also where Delrico Johnson had a huge layout that got traction all over ESPN, and made him into a fan favorite. Fans are encouraged to take the D.C. Metro to get to the stadium. It is a short walk from the Clarendon, Virginia Square, and Ballston-MU metro stops on the Orange Line. If you do plan on driving please park on Washington Blvd.
June 18 vs. Philadelphia Spinners at Woodrow Wilson HS in Tenleytown, DC.
In the season finale of the 2016 regular season the team will head to their home away from home. The Current have been practicing here all season long and to the team it is fitting that they end their regular season here. Wilson has a rich ultimate community with a very competitive club team that includes two players in the Current system, recently called up Jake Radack and practice player Duncan Fitzgerald, a member of the USA U-19 team. The stadium is a short walk from the Tenleytown Metro stop on the Red Line. The entrance is on west gate on Nebraska Avenue.
