Plans Set In Motion For Kent County Regional Sports Complex

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICA, Del. - On Wednesday, officials gathered at the site of the Kent County Regional Sports Complex to announce a slew of updates and let the community know this major project is making some huge leaps forward.

The Central Delaware Soccer Association has signed on to play their games at the complex, which will boast 15 fields - including a championship lit turf field with a capacity of 1,500 - and an indoor complex. The multipurpose facility will become a hub for soccer, field hockey and lacrosse when it is completed and ready for play sometime in 2014.

The Kent County Regional Sports Complex is projected to have an economic impact of more than $18 million annually in Delaware.  During the first year of the project, 180 construction jobs will be created, and more than 2,000 jobs will be created during tournaments and camps, which will equal 210 full-time continuing jobs, according to a study by the University of Delaware.

Meetings on the Kent County Regional Sports Complex began three years ago and, in July, the Delaware Infrastructure Investment Committee approved more than $3.2 million in state funding, which paved the way for the project to move forward.
