New Owensboro Street Soccer Court at Legion Park First in Kentucky [VIDEO]
For the first time ever in Kentucky, we have our own Street Soccer Court at Legion Park in Owensboro! Soccer fans in the tri-state are going to love it.
For several weeks I've been driving past Legion Park wondering what was going to take the place of the tennis court and we finally have the answer! It has become a Street Soccer Court and it's super cool. The first one of it's kind in Kentucky and the closest one is in Indianapolis. Before you say it or think it.....it didn't cost the City of Owensboro anything! The money was raised and provided by SportsTutor in Owensboro.
Mayor Tom Watson and City Commissioners were on hand for the ribbon cutting this afternoon at Legion Park.
We had some fun talking about the new court, how it came about and the difference between Street Soccer and regular Soccer. There really isn't a whole lot! Watch the video and learn more.
The complex is beautiful. All ages are welcome and there's plans for future tournaments too! So much fun for soccer enthusiasts.
