Minnesota State University, Mankato celebrated the start of construction on the $5.49 million seasonal Maverick All-Sports Dome at a campus groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday. The air-inflated multipurpose facility is expected to open in December. It will provide space for University academic classes, Campus Recreation programs, Intercollegiate Athletics, the Maverick Machine band and other campus clubs and organizations. Local youth and adult sports organizations, area school districts and other colleges will be able to rent the facility. SCHEELS All-Sports Foundation has also provided $500,000 to help offset the facility’s annual operating costs. In exchange, the name of the facility’s synthetic turf field space will be “SCHEELS Field at the Maverick All-Sports Dome.”
