As D.C. United gets set to move into Audi Field, the team announced it has chosen VenueNext to supply a new stadium and team app, which will include support for a wide range of services including digital ticketing, video highlights and replays, and a virtual currency that will let fans purchase goods and services at the stadium via their mobile device.

The new deal is VenueNext’s first customer in Major League Soccer, following earlier wins with pro teams in the NFL and Major League Baseball, as well as the NHL and NBA. One of the MLS’ founding clubs, D.C. United will move into the new 20,000-seat Audi Field in the middle of July.

According to a press release from VenueNext, in addition to video and static content about the team, players and league, the app will also support mobile ticketing for stadium entry, the ability to order concessions via the app for express pick-up, in-stadium and public transit wayfinding, and directions to parking.
