Crews will break ground on a new sports center in Marshall, Minnesota, on Thursday.

The Southwest Minnesota Regional Sports Center is expected to open in late 2015 or early 2016 and will include an indoor arena with two ice rinks.

The center will host wrestling, basketball, volleyball, soccer, trade shows, expos, art fairs and other events. It also has an outdoor complex with four fields for softball and baseball.

The state appropriated about $4.3 million to the project from the bonding bill, and the Schwan Food Company donated more than 29 acres of property to the city for the sports center and surrounding infrastructure. The facility is near Marshall High School and Southwest Minnesota State University.

Those expected to be in attendance at Thursday’s groundbreaking include Gov. Mark Dayton, Marshall Mayor Bob Byrnes, Marshall Chamber of Commerce Director Cal Brink and others.
