Lexington to have new Indoor Sports facility, Kentucky

Saturday, Feb 21, 2015

The city of Lexington has 80 percent of the funding for a $1.4 million field house. Not only is there a need for it in Lexington, the community says it could host teams from Kearney to Cozad.

The building will be off of Airport Road.
Players on the high school's soccer team are excited for the facility.

“I think the city really supports athletics and supports, because that's what Lexington is known for. Not just soccer, football and any other sports,” Allen Castenada said.

“We'd have more assimilated 90 minute games on actual field, it feel more realistic as when we are playing outdoors,” Kevin Toledo said.

Sometimes the Lexington soccer players have nowhere else to go and have to run in the hallways to prepare for the season. Coach of Minutemen soccer Jess Mchargue says the complex will help out other athletes and younger kids.

“It's going to impact our elementary age kids, it's going to allow us to do clinics and camps and really let football, track, baseball, softball, all those sports are going to benefit from having an area to train in, compete in year round,” Mchargue said.

He adds the facility will allow Lexington to host tournaments and invite other cities. The city will open bids to build the new complex March 19.
