Eau Claire says its soccer fields will be ready for this Saturday’s opening, weather permitting.
Recreation Manager Patrick Newkirk says crews will put on the finishing touches this week. There will be some changes, Newkirk says they’ve had to reformat some fields after someone drove through the soccer complex last week. Those ruts are being repaired as well. Newkirk says as long as there isn’t too much rain or too much snow, he expects soccer to be played this weekend.
