Installation of 12 permanent lights at Prairie Ridge helps make all fields game ready under the lights!
In 2012, the Iowa Rush Soccer Club and the City of Ankeny celebrated the initial installation of six permanent lights that helped to provide ‘game ready’ lights on one full size soccer field, and minimal lighting on three additional fields for use during practices. We are hoping to raise $440,000 to light the remaining three practice fields to make them ‘game ready’, as well to light the remaining two unlit fields and bring them to ‘game ready’ quality. The goal of the Light Up Prairie Ridge project is to complete all six full size game fields that play host to Recreational, Academy and Select levels teams each year, while extending the soccer opportunities to all within the community.
Fundraising Goal: $440,000
In 2012, the Iowa Rush Soccer Club installed six permanent stadium lights at Prairie Ridge Soccer Complex. The four lights poles surrounding Field 35 have supplied us with one full ‘game ready’ field that is able to accommodate evening league games, tournament games, and even collegiate soccer games. By raising $440,000, we can illuminate the remaining fields on the north side of the soccer complex, and give hundreds more hours of soccer play to Ankeny and visiting players each year.
The project has the capability to increase the number of players, their families, and fans to the complex on a daily basis during the outdoor fall and spring seasons for years to come. Interested in what that exposure could bring for a business, organization, or even leaving a last memory of your child's favorite field to play soccer?
