b2ap3_thumbnail_rfkstadium.jpgOpening Ceremonies for the Fairfax 2015 World Police & Fire Games will be held at the historic Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C. - affectionately known as “RFK” around the globe. RFK is the current home for Major League Soccer's D.C. United. Many remember this great stadium as the previous home to football's Washington Redskins and baseball's Washington Nationals.

In 2011, the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic™, an annual football game between two historically black colleges and universities, joined the diverse schedule of events at the stadium. Music fans have also been thrilled by performances under the stars at RFK by artists such as Elton John, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, U2, the Eagles and the Grateful Dead. An illustrious roster of legends have passed through the stadium doors, but the evidence shows, the future is as bright as ever.

And now this great stadium will host public safety athletes of both law enforcement and fire services from over 70 countries. It is our hope to produce an Opening Ceremony fitting of these great heroes.

We encourage all athletes and guests to take Metrorail for the 2015 World Police & Fire Games Opening Ceremonies. Both the BLUE and the ORANGE lines will take you to the Stadium - Armory stop.

    It's now less than 24hrs until registration I know two guys who are really looking forward to June/July 2015. Except for logging in we are up and running but I have one query: what is the dress code for the opening and closing ceremony ie do we wear any uniforms/medals? My reason for enquiring is that I intend to participate in both ceremonies (if I survive the golf!) and I would not like to be improperly dressed and risk offence to the Organisers of the games or spectators as this is the first time I will be participating in the games and whilst we are all proud of our Service, whatever form that took, I would not wish to attend in Service regalia if this is not the proper form for the occasions. As a retired Police Officer from the Royal Ulster Constabulary (George Cross) and a member of their Association, our normal attire for formal occasions is blazer, shirt, tie, slacks and medals. However, I don't want to stand out from the crowd like a fool if the code is less formal. It would be helpful to know what other participants wear or have worn previously. Thank you :-)
