New sports complex confirmed for Bay County

Posted: Updated:
BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

WNEM.com has confirmed that a new sports facility will be built in Bay County with a target opening date set for sometime in October.

Manoj Shah, with Top Shelv Worldwide LLC, is CEO of the company tasked with building the complex. Crews have already started clearing a 19-acre property of trees and brush near U.S. 10 and Garfield, not far from the town of Auburn.

"We are in the process of finalizing all of our approvals with the various boards and commissions," said Shah. "At the same time, [we're] working with our construction company and finalizing all the details to put a first-class recreational complex."

The indoor sports complex will have a dome - the first of its kind for our area. It will total 73,500 square feet and be able to accommodate indoor field sports. Those fields will be covered with artificial turf.

The construction of the facility will mean more jobs coming to the area, as local contractors and engineering firms are expected to be used.

"When we have all of our details complete, we will share with you [more] exciting information," said Shah.

The facility is to be named the Tri-City Sports Complex.
