Just over three months since its launch, DCFC’s Keyworth investment campaign has
reached blown past its minimum goal of $400k. As 7 PM on 2/3/16 the current tally stands at:
The heavy duty renovations of Keyworth Stadium can now begin, with three solid months remaining until the start of the 2016 season. We’ll probably get one last year of preseason games at Hurley Field, after all.
Looking ahead, $500k seems within reach, but the maximum target goal of $750k may be asking a little too much at this point. What that means:
To sum up, unless a massive investment push happens in the next week and a half, major construction on the east grandstand – the future supporters’ section – will likely be put on hold for the time being. I would imagine that project, along with the installation of a grass field, would be at the top of the agenda for 2017, but everything will obviously depend on the funds available.
For now, it’s time to celebrate this milestone. We’ve achieved something most other clubs would never even consider attempting, and our actions as supporters are going to have tangible, long-lasting, positive effects on a piece of our local community. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
