2023 Matchday Information

Washington, D.C. (05/25/2023) – The Washington Spirit will recognize military personnel and first responders through numerous on-field and concourse activations. Welcoming fans to Audi Field will be a Virginia National Guard Jeep and D.C. Fire vehicle and flag at Gate A and B, respectively.


Located at Spiritville, the D.C. National Guard and D.C. Fire & EMS (DC FEMS) will be tabling. DC FEMS will offer its free “Hands on Hearts” CPR Program to fans. The program has taught thousands of people how to increase a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival through hands-only CPR.


On the Spirit Stage, a Center for American Military Music Opportunity (CAMMO) group will perform. CAMMO is an organization that empowers service members, veterans and military-connected families through music, bringing the military community together to share in the love – and healing powers – of music.


Before the game, Master Sergeant Caleb Green III, an accomplished performer and vocalist with the United States Army Band, will perform the National Anthem while Lieutenant Matthew Baird of DC FEMS will serve as the American Sign Language performer. The Color Guard will be represented by the George Mason University ROTC.
