UMKC receives gift of $5 million for soccer stadium

MOST COMMENTED

UMKC has received a gift of $5 million -- the largest single commitment ever to UMKC athletics -- for the construction of a new soccer stadium in the heart of UMKC's Volker campus.

The Stanley H. Durwood Foundation and its trustees, Raymond F. Beagle, Jr. and Charles J. Egan, made the pledge that will pave the way for a facility that will provide the Kangaroos with one of the top soccer facilities in the Summit League. The facility also calls for the construction of locker rooms and offices that will benefit the UMKC men's and women's soccer, softball and men's and women's track and field programs. It also will feature a premier four-lane track and a concession area.

The competition venue of the Stanley H. Durwood Stadium is anticipated to be completed for the new UMKC women's soccer program's first game in 2009. The entire complex is slated to open in the spring of 2010.
