YAKIMA, WA— The Soccer Community in greater Yakima has reason to celebrate as ground was recently broken on a new, giant outdoor / indoor soccer complex. In their headline, the Yakima Herald called it “an emotional day.” (Lots of photos.)
Gold-plated shovels hit the dirt (video) as hundreds of local youth soccer players and others from the community cheered (video) the start of a construction process that is expected to be completed some time in 2017.
The newspaper also ran this “open mike” video on the project.
The start of the Sozo project has put a hold on a similar soccer complex idea at nearby Union Gap.
