American State Bank Sports Complex Moving Forward

A local contractor will lead the construction of Sioux Center’s new indoor turf facility.

After receiving bids to construct the American State Bank Sports Complex, the Sioux Center City Council approved sending a letter of intent to the low bidder, Schelling Construction, of Sioux Center. 

Construction of the complex, with an approximate total cost of $8.5 million, is slated to begin later this spring, with the project anticipated to be complete by the end of the year and open to the public as soon as January 2023.

The air-supported dome structure over the turf will be 250 by 470 feet with a height of 75 feet. The main entrance will be an 8,400-square-foot head-end building, which will house offices, restrooms, storage, concessions, and seating.

The facility, a joint venture between the City of Sioux Center and Dordt University, will host youth athletic programs, college athletic programs, adult athletic programs and wellness activities, practices, and tournaments. The turf will be designed to host a wide range of activities such as soccer, youth football, softball, athletic practices, recreation activities, and other multi-purpose uses, and the planned size of the facility allows for spectators. It is estimated that the American State Bank Sports Complex could draw 200,000 people each year. 

“The proposed facility will be great for the community and also a great regional attraction that will bring people to Sioux Center,” said Sioux Center City Manager Scott Wynja. “This year-round complex will attract many events to our community and have a positive impact on our businesses and community.”
