Regional Athletic Complex

Salt Lake City voters passed a $15.3 million bond in 2003 for the construction of a Regional Athletic Complex to provide soccer and baseball fields for recreation and competition purposes. The use of public funds was contingent upon securing a $7.5 million match from private sources, fulfilled through a gift from the Major League Soccer Organization Real Salt Lake in 2007. The new 140 acre complex features 16 soccer/multi-purpose fields, including a stadium field that features a scoreboard, restrooms and concessions.

                
         

PLEASE NOTE: The Regional Athletic Complex is not available for practice without special permission. Fields are playable by RESERVATION ONLY. No open play is allowed at the Regional Athletic Complex.
