Group Asking For Donations to Start Soccer Complex Project

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A new Yakima group is looking to build a multisport complex, and they need your help start it.

The Terra Sol Sports Alliance wants to build a new facility with 12 new soccer fields in Yakima to attract more state tournaments and business.

The organization says they're looking at a number of places for the complex, including the Boise Cascade Mill Site and the fairgrounds.

"I think it's just gonna really communicate a positive message to the Yakima valley residents and our visitors, they're gonna see this and say "wow, people really value recreation and getting outdoors here in the valley," said Larry Mattson with the Terra Sol Sports Alliance.

Right now, the group is looking to raise five thousand dollars to start filing permits to form a non-profit organization. They need to do that before they take on the rest of the work.

They have a website set up where you can donate to help.
