CHICAGO, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- The Chicago Fire Soccer Club said Monday it will convert a local vacant factory and surrounding land into a two-field, domed soccer center.

The 140,000 square-foot facility on 4.7 acres of land on Chicago's North Side is expected to be completed by summer, the Chicago Tribune reported. It will include two regulation-sized soccer fields and the first air-supported dome within the city.

It will be used by the Fire, a Major League Soccer team, as well as teams from neighboring schools, universities and recreational soccer leagues, team owner Andrew Hauptman said.
