'Dakota Fields' one step closer to becoming reality

Posted:

Meantime a proposed soccer complex gets its official name, and is closer to becoming reality.
 
 
 
Kurt Whitesell, who's on the fundraising committee, says the complex will be called Dakota Fields.

The City of Rapid City will be fronting $3.8 million for the project. With the total cost between $5.8 and $6.0 million dollars.

Whitesell wouldn't give specifics but says fundraising has begun on the two million additional dollars needed.

But will say that when all is said and done Dakota Fields will be an invaluable asset to the community.

 
"When I look at all the times I've driven across town for different games, having it all in one place is going to be phenomenal. I think for soccer itself it's going to be great but for other sports it'll be great for opening up other fields currently in use," says Whitesell.
 
Whitesell says businesses in the area will benefit as well from teams coming in from out of town.
