Frisco is becoming the sports mecca of the Metroplex. Performance Indoor Training (PIT) plans to break ground next week on a new 56k SF indoor soccer facility. (Now you can yell at the officials while enjoying air conditioning.)

The Deal Sheet: Part 2

The facility—7255 Meadow Hill Dr near the home of FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium—should open in the spring. It includes three indoor FIFA certified turf fields, three futsal fields (two indoor, one outdoor), one full-size outdoor field, two outdoor sand soccer pits, and an indoor training simulator (first of its kind in the US). A group of local soccer parents and investors coordinated an LLC (called Frisco Indoor Plex) to organize the $6M project, Frisco EDC prez Jim Gandy tells us. The City of Frisco is contributing $200k toward infrastructure costs through an economic incentive agreement.

Jim says the PIT will join a long list of Frisco sports facilities, including the Texas Rangers AA affiliate (pictured), the Dallas Stars corporate HQ and practice facility, and the FC Dallas stadium. This fall, a competitive swim facility is opening, and coming in 2016 will be the City of Frisco/Frisco ISD-owned, multi-use event center (hosting concerts, sports, and school events), which will also be the training facility for the Dallas Cowboys and include a high school football stadium.

Men’s Journal named the city the best place to raise an athlete. Jim (here at the Dallas Cowboys world HQ groundbreaking) says the soccer facility will not only help city residents, but will bring in tax dollars from the visiting athletes and tournaments. DesignWorks of Arlington is the project architect, Schmoldt Construction from Celina is the contractor, and Texas-based Carrihan Creative is managing marketing consulting and design. First National Bank Southwest is the project’s financing partner.
