SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Siouxland Soccer Foundation is preparing for a major project that will level the playing field. Literally.

The soccer complex at Riverside Park will undergo landscaping this summer in an effort to level the fields at the facility for the 1,500 children playing youth soccer each year. The foundation has been working with the city to raise funds for the project through parents and businesses that support youth soccer.

The renovation will provide space for more fields than are currently at the facility, and the Siouxland Soccer Foundation is excited about the expansion. "Our mission is to promote soccer, but also get kids out and get kids active," said Siouxland Soccer Foundation president Jason Glover. "We're able to really fulfill our mission through our partnership with the city and being able to get this complex rebuilt."

The Siouxland Soccer Foundation expects the project to be completed in the fall, but the fields won't be playable until next summer.
    
They're still searching for fields to use until then.
