Marshall is getting ready to build a 10K soccer complex. That will be able to handle not only youth soccer but NCAA regional's as well.

The Sun Bowl was renovated to accomodate soccer, so if UTEP needed they could have a 51k soccer stadium.

RE: Conference USA Facilities
While that is fundamental, I am more concerned with how they fill up and how the teams consistently perform within those confines. We have been debating all this for many years FYI but welcome to the party.

Yes, how is another question.

Immediate option is temporary seating on the concourse level. There's room for 10,000 but at the press conference, Judy said we'd probably use temp bleachers only to get us to 20,000 (5000 temp).

We've already planned to ask for $60M bond issuance from the state gov. in the 2014-15 budget year, so we could go ahead and ask for it sooner or just use the temp bleachers until we can start the expansion after the 2016 season:

I didn't realize it was going to be 10,000 seats. That's got to be one of the largest dedicated college soccerfield in the country.

Hamrick said if you can't build 1st class facilities, then you shouldn't build them at all. As I said this is being built the way it is, hopefully to attract NCAA regional play.
