A lighted, 12-field youth soccer complex under construction in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, financed with $35 million from $65 million of general obligation bonds sold by the city in December 2007, has already received reservations for 19 tournaments that will generate more than $400,000 in economic activity.

The complex will open in September, and all the fields are reserved every weekend from the opening day through November. The fields are also booked from March through mid-June of 2010, with games tentatively set for every weekend from mid-August through November 2010.
