Sioux Center Sporting Dome Will Soon Open

Sioux Center, Iowa — The sporting dome that is being built in Sioux Center is getting its finishing touches. Scott Wynja, City Manager of Sioux Center, tells KIWA that the American State Bank Sports Complex is almost completed. Right now the dome is inflated, it’s getting a layer of insulation, and the lights are being hung over the turf.

He tells us that the complex is 120,000 square feet. It’s 250 feet wide by 475 feet long and 75 feet tall.

He says the schools in Sioux Center and Dordt University will use the facility for practice, youth sporting events will be played there, and the community will be welcome to use it just for fun.

The total cost for this sporting complex is nine million dollars. The city did not pay for this alone. There is a joint 50/50 partnership with Dordt University. He tells us that this partnership will continue for any operational costs.

The American State Bank Sports Complex is located in the former location of Heritage Village, near the All Seasons Center. Wynja says he is hopeful for a soft opening at the end of December, and programs, such as youth sports, beginning at the beginning of January.
