Star: New OP soccer complex gets national tournament

The Star:

Overland Park has landed a major national tournament for its new $36 million soccer complex that’s scheduled to open later this summer.

The United States Youth Soccer Association is planning to hold its national youth soccer championships in Kansas City’s biggest suburb from July 20-25, 2010. An official announcement about the tournament is expected next month.

The national championships top off a series of events known as the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship Series, in which more than 10,000 teams compete every year.

The national championship, which will draw 60 teams and 1,000 players from across the country, will be played at the new complex, which is nearing completion with a dozen synthetic turf fields near the corner of 135th Street and Switzer Road in south Overland Park.
