Opening 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.
