With the explosion of FIFA revenues has come an opportunity to increase the funding for construction of FIFA soccer fields. FIFA desires to make sustainability a larger factor in the building of these facilities. In this new field construction strategy, “Hosts” are selected by a separate site selection committee who will choose the local sponsor for the projects. Hosts will be involved with permitting, and will eventually be given ownership of the completed facilities. Hosts can be municipalities, businesses, nonprofit organizations, or individuals. Hosts will apply to receive a new FIFA constructed soccer field through a lmeticulous process which will have two core criteria: (1) Can the host provide a buildable and sustainable site?, and (2) Can the host provide longterm, sustainable support for the facility? The purpose of this specific (pilot) project is to create a template to construct the 5side sustainable soccer fields on the sites selected by a previous project committee. Our project team is a fulltime, projectized team. Our specific responsibilities include selecting local and regional sources of competent labor and sustainable building materials, overseeing the construction process itself, liaise with Hosts during the construction process, and handingoff the completed facilities to the Hosts as well as the longterm sustainability project committee at FIFA, who we pass the facility to for FIFA sided longterm maintenance and support.
