Audi Field, home of Major League Soccer Club, D.C. United, has partnered with KultureCity to make the venue and all of the programs and events that the stadium hosts to be sensory inclusive. This initiative promotes an accommodating and positive experience for all guests and fans with sensory sensitivities that visit. The dedicated space is designed by medical professionals for those who may need a quieter and more secure environment. This is imperative to ensuring fans have a great guest experience. The sensory room is outfitted with bean bags from Yogibo, the visual light panels by Nanoleaf, activity panels, Sparkle Interactive Light (by NunoErin – a therapeutically fun furniture embedded with soft glowing lights that respond to motion), bubble walls, and a custom tactile artwork created by an autistic artist.
