VYSA to construct 2,000 seat stadium field at Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center
(Via VYSA) – The Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) announced today that they have received funding to complete the final phase in the development of the Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center (PVSTC).
VYSA will begin construction of the Championship Stadium at PVSTC this fall with an anticipated completion late spring, 2020. The stadium which has a bowl design allowing for spectators to view from both permanent mid-field locations or within natural grass areas will seat up to 2,000 spectators.
VYSA has selected an Astroturf artificial surface system that will include a Brock shock-pad that will meet or exceed industry GMAX specifications for safety.
Lighting will be provided by MUSCO and RCCI will act as general contractor on the project. VYSA will be seeking a naming rights sponsor for the stadium. Inquiries can be made by contacting VYSA’s Executive Director Phil Summers at [email protected].
VYSA Executive Director Phil Summers commented “Since PVSTC opened in 2014 we have been working to improve and complete the Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center. The Championship Stadium will be an exciting addition and focal point to what is already one of the finest athletic facilities on the East Coast”.
The addition of this Championship Stadium will complete the 51-acre facility that includes nine FIFA regulation fields including six that are professional quality Bermuda grass and three that are artificial surfaced with lights. PVSTC has been home to USYS Regional Championships, USYS Virginia National Championship Series, USYS Virginia President’s Cup, Virginia ODP, US Soccer Coaching Education courses, tournaments including the Jefferson Cup, WAGS and Ultimate Regionals. It is available to rent for soccer and all field sports.
The first ever Girls ECNL National Selection Game will be held in Phoenix, AZ in conjunction with the Girls ECNL National Event at Reach 11 Sports Complex from November 8-10, 2019.
Of the 578 teams from across North America that will be participating in the fast-approaching EDP Cup Fall 2019, a large number will be traveling from far and wide.
In an exclusive interview, SoccerWire spoke with Richmond United ECNL Director Aaron Brunner on the club's steady rise to success in league competition, and in the player development realm with a steady stream of USYNT call-ups.
