A NEW KENTUCKY HOME: In Louisville, C.L. Brown reports the Univ. of Louisville's new $17.5M soccer stadium, the “second-biggest project” in the athletic department's history, will “begin construction as early as June.” UL remains about $3M "shy of the total, which could change when the construction bidding process takes place, and the school is still soliciting donations.” The target date for completion is September '14, which "would have the facility ready just in time" for the school’s move to the ACC. The stadium “will be built across from the football practice fields on South Floyd Street.” The field will have “a seating capacity estimated at 5,300." It also will hold a 15,500-square-foot training center that "includes the men’s and women’s locker rooms” (Louisville COURIER-JOURNAL, 2/22).
