MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] Fitz Johnson, owner of Women's Professional Soccer's expansion Atlanta Beat and Kennesaw State University President Dr. Daniel S. Papp announced a partnership to construct the first soccer-only stadium specifically for a WPS team -- a $16.5 million, 8,300-seat soccer stadium in Kennesaw, Ga.
 
The stadium, scheduled for completion in 2010, is located on a 21-acre parcel of land, lies between George Busbee Parkway and the I-575 overpass on Big Shanty Road.  It will be home to both the Atlanta Beat Women's Professional Soccer team and the KSU Owls women's soccer program.
 
"This stadium will be the only women's soccer-specific stadium of its kind in the world," said Johnson. "I think this partnership is a great match between KSU and the Atlanta Beat."

"This first-class facility is the perfect venue in which to showcase our championship women's soccer program," said KSU President Dr. Papp.
