The Houston Dutch Lions FC is pleased to announce the groundbreaking of Phase I of the club’s new soccer complex. On Wednesday April 17 at 4pm, the Houston Dutch Lions will proudly break ground on the first stage of construction for the club’s complex. The new complex will be located at 14562 I-45 South in Conroe, TX. Club officials will also give a brief presentation describing what the Dutch Lions soccer complex will include and what the club plans to bring to the soccer communities of Montgomery County and North Houston. A reception at the groundbreaking site for all attendees will follow the presentation.
The first stage of construction on the complex will include two regulation size soccer fields that will be used for both training and games by the club’s Youth Academy and Professional Teams. These fields will be available for tournaments and potentially for rental by other local sports clubs needing additional practice space. Along with the fields, the club is designing a structure that will house club offices, concessions, merchandise shop and equipment storage. The facility will be a large investment into the youth of the area and is reflective of the incredible growth in Montgomery County.
