Cool 5,000 Seat Soccer Stadium Coming to Statesboro/GS
http://www.usld3.com/news_article/show/8...id=3067499

Tormenta FC is Statesboro's Minor League Soccer team. The new stadium will have a capacity of 5,000 but be expandable to 10k for other events and will be located across the bypass from the Georgia Southern RAC. The stadium will also feature office/commercial space, and the project is being developed by the same company that built the new Braves Stadium. Though the article above doesn't mention GS Soccer specifically, the plan is for GS soccer to use the venue as well and LED signage will change based on who is playing. Huge step for the city of Statesboro.

Didn't we just upgrade the soccer/track complex?

This would be one of the top on-campus college soccer venues in the country, and that's not an exaggeration. For comparison, Virginia's stadium seats 3,500 not including grass seats. UNC's stadium seats 5,700.

Whether it would translate to being more competitive in soccer...maybe.

I think they renovated the bathrooms and stuff but that facility isn't any bigger than my house so it couldn't have cost too much.

I personally find soccer boring but that's still awesome to have a minor league team invest in its longevity in town-that would be awesome for any college town

I'm confused. Is this on-campus, near-campus or off?
