This 162-acre sports complex, owned by the nonprofit Maryland Soccer Foundation and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, features multiple synthetic turf AirField systems utilizing AirDrain. Now a national attraction, the complex hosts back to back soccer tournaments and a hotel.
‘‘It’s coming in a little later than we hoped,” Trish Heffelfinger, executive director of the nonprofit Maryland Soccer Foundation, operator of the SoccerPlex, said last week. ‘‘We would’ve hoped to have it by the start of the fall season,” which began over the weekend.
The synthetic-turf fields will enable the park to accommodate more games, and nine new light fixtures will allow for nighttime play, she said. The SoccerPlex will be able to host 4,000 games and practices a year, up from the current 3,000.
‘‘I think it’s certainly going to add another dimension to what’s going on there,” Rick Heilman, president of the Gaithersburg-based Seneca Soccer Association, said last week. ‘‘… We always run into light problems.”
