Construction is beginning on a $36 million multi-sport facility north of the river. The complex, near Missouri Highway 152 and Platte Purchase Drive, will have ten synthetic turf fields to be used for soccer, football, baseball, softball and lacrosse.
It will be operated by Sporting Fields Athletics, a division of Sporting KC. All ten fields will be lighted with parking, trail connections, an inclusive playground for kids who face challenges, and a field house with restrooms and concessions.
The 76-acre sports complex already is seeing a $375-millon dollar multi-use development around it that will include housing, retail and office space.
The sports complex is only a 10 minute drive from KCI Airport and boosters promise that it will draw tournaments and visitors from across the nation to play in Kansas City.
