Construction on the University’s portion of Rock Chalk Park officially commenced with the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday.
The new facility will consist of a 1,500-seat softball stadium, a 2,500-seat soccer stadium, a 10,000-seat track and field complex and a 28,000-square-foot indoor training building. There will be parking for 700 cars and overflow space for 700 more. The project will cost the University $39 million dollars.
The complex is being constructed on the northwest corner of town, just east of K-10.
