Rapid City soccer complex fundraisers exceed $1 million

A committee raising funds for a Rapid City soccer complex has reached a milestone.    More than $1 million has been raised in gifts and pledges for the 12-field complex called Dakota Fields, located off Exit 61 on Elk Vale Road.

Acting Executive Director Roger Tellinghuisen said local companies and private individuals alike are stepping up to provide a much needed playing area for the growing sport.  "We are very pleased with the campaign's progress to date and the generosity of our local donors.  The city's Parks and Recreation Board has already approved a number of naming opportunities for donors, but there are still many recognition opportunities remaining, including naming the complex," Tellinghuisen said.

The money raised with supplement what the city of Rapid City has already pledged to the project, providing a central vending area and social commons.

Construction on the fields began in November. The fields should be ready for play by the spring of 2016.
