The state of Michigan, and in particular, the city of Woodhaven, located 26 miles southwest of Detroit, is about to get an impressive new facility where athletes can compete year-round.
Michigan Sports Center, LLC, (MSC) recently announced its plans to build a multi-sport indoor facility in the City of Woodhaven. The 220,000-square-foot facility will be located along the new I-75 frontage road Ford Lane between West Road and Van Horn, and will be located adjacent to a 65-acre nature area with public access to walking, running, and biking trails.
In addition, more than 40 acres along I-75 will be developed with hotels, restaurants, retail and other complimentary commercial uses. Grand opening for the sports facility is planned for early October 2019.
The Michigan Sports Center will be the training and home field facility for some of Michigan’s most successful youth sports organizations, as well as host to recreational activities, regional and national tournaments, showcases, and other events. Playing surfaces will be provided for basketball, volleyball, softball/baseball, soccer, flag football, lacrosse, pickleball, and other sporting activities.
Current plans are for four regulation high-school basketball courts (8 youth courts), eight tournament regulation volleyball courts (12 training courts), an approximately 165’ x 185’ multi-purpose turf field and a 230’ x 400’ state-of-the-art turf field. The all-indoor playing surfaces can be re-configured in several ways to suite the specific needs of the sporting event, such as 15 regulation/tournament volleyball courts, four regulation futsal courts, two full high school 180’ softball fields, four regulation flag football fields, one lacrosse field (or 3 small-sided lacrosse fields), one 11 v 11 soccer field (or six 6 v 6 soccer fields) and four 4 v 4 soccer fields.
Other amenities planned include physical therapy/performance training, conference room, sports bar, concessions, golf simulator and gaming center, coaches offices and mezzanine viewing areas.
