SACO – XL Soccer World Saco LLC has purchased the Southern Maine Sports Zone property located at 400 North St. in Saco from Howard Sports Inc. and plans a major renovation of the athletic facility.
The property consists of a 9.13-acre, highly visible site on I-95 with a 75,640-square-foot indoor sports facility featuring basketball courts, artificial turf fields, fitness center and restaurant/ bar.
XL Sports World’s newest acquisition will undergo an approximate $1 million investment over the next six weeks to improve the current facilities. This will include a complete refurbishment of the interior plus brand new state-of-the-art indoor fields that can be used for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey and other sports. The planned completion date is early July 2012.
“The newly built fields will be open for rentals and will also offer soccer programs and leagues for all ages”, said Kris Lamb, co-owner and CEO of XL Sports World and co-owner of its related business XL Soccer Tours.
Lamb and business partner Ciaran McArdle have offices in Orlando, Fla., Raleigh, N.C. and Manchester, England.
