SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI-Township officials have approved a plan to allow Shelby Soccer City Inc. to build a $20-million indoor-outdoor soccer complex on township-owned property in Macomb County. In exchange for allowing the company to build on 120 acres of township-owned land on the south side of 23 Mile east of Dequindre, the township will get free use of the facility.

In addition, after the lease expires in 25 years, the township will take over the facility and benefit from any improvements made to the property. Meram Building Co Inc. of Shelby Township has been hired as the general contractor for the project. Construction is expected to begin this summer. The complex will contain a 100,000-sf indoor multi-sports building, a 60,000-sf sports dome, which will retract in the spring/summer and become an outdoor field, as well as seven full-size outdoor soccer fields.

The complex will have a total of up to 14 soccer fields, which will also be used for other sports as well, like flag football, lacrosse, volleyball, dodgeball and inline hockey. Shelby Soccer expects more than 2.5 million players, spectators, and parents to visit the complex each year. The company is currently looking for corporate sponsors for naming rights of the fields and possibly the entire complex. It says there are several corporate sponsors who have expressed interest in marketing within the facility.
