The matchup has also shifted from the Spirit’s regular home, Segra Field, to Audi Field, the 20,000 capacity soccer-specific stadium also home to Major League Soccer’s D.C. United.

While this game will now be closed to the public, fans can stream via Paramount+, the newly launched premium streaming service from ViacomCBS.
