Construction for the LAFC practice and training facility began in early summer and it is expected to conclude at the end of the fall semester. While, the training site is just lot filled with dirt, the track field is progressing.

Earlier this year CSU Trustees approved the $30 million-dollar major league soccer project on campus, which included funding renovations to the university’s track, field, and lighting system in the Billie Jean King Sports Complex.

The impact of the project raised concerns regarding traffic and parking during the fall 2017 semester. Some students are anticipating the end product.

“I’m excited to see how it turns out when the construction is all finished,” said Monique Wade, a Cal State LA student.

The project, designed by Gensler Sports, will be completely financed by LAFC, and is designed to incorporate the campus’ industrial and modern design style.
