Multimillion dollar field hockey facility proposed for Legacy Sports Complex

Great Lakes Regional Field Hockey (GLRFH), in partnership with Green Oak Township-based Legacy Center Sports Complex (Legacy Center), announced plans last week to build a water-based field hockey field to support the growth and continued development of field hockey in the Great Lakes Region.

GLRFH officials the proposed $2 million facility would be the first short-piled, non-infill community turf in the region, and would serve as a blueprint for future growth of the sport across the Midwest. Water-based fields are more commonly found at the collegiate and international level of the sport, allowing for a faster-paced competition.

According to the GLRFH website, the Legacy Center is an ideal location due to its proximity to both I-96 and US-23, providing convenient access to field hockey players across the state.

“The new field is certain to become a nationally recognized, premier host site for local, regional and national field hockey events and competitions,” states the website. “The expansion of GLRFH programming, and the new water-based field, will increase access to the sport by giving the region a facility that puts field hockey first. The Legacy Center, as a first partner location, is ideal due to the existing infrastructure that includes professional sports facilities management, a 104,000 square foot dome, a 101,000 square foot field house, and all the other surrounding facilities and shared services.”

GLRFH has kicked off a Field Hockey First fundraising campaign seeking to raise $2,150,000 to build the first of its kind water-based turf field at the Legacy Center Sports Complex. You date, just over $90,000 has been raised.
