Youngstown State University will today announce a major gift from Farmers National Bank to help in the construction of the new sports complex along Fifth Avenue across from Stambaugh Stadium.

The soccer field that is part of the complex will be named Farmers National Bank Field, pending the March approval by the YSU Board of Trustees.

The field will be used by YSU students participating in intramurals and club sports, as well as the women’s soccer team, which currently plays at Stambaugh Stadium.

The university anticipates that community groups may use the soccer field for tournaments and other events.

The sports complex, located on the corner of the Madison Avenue Expressway service road and Fifth Avenue, will also include a softball field and track.

The cost of the project is estimated at $4.3 millon. It will be funded with university bonds and private donations and should be complete by summer.
