FOLEY, AL- The city of Foley will host its first, official tournament at its 32 million dollar sportsplex Memorial Day Weekend.

A small, youth soccer tournament will test out three of facility’s 16 multi-purpose fields. The other fields are still being built.

“This is a dress rehearsal the next two weekends,” says director Don Staley. “We’re going to learn a lot about the complex, things we need to do better from an event management side.”

The first event will be small, but when all 16 fields, including a first-class championship field open later this year, the local, long-term economic impact will be substantial.

The city also hopes to break ground on an events center next month.
