Need To Turn A Field Into A Sports Facility? What To Know

Are you trying to lease some property for your soccer club, football organization or another outdoor activity and you aren't sure what you'll need? Depending on the type of goals or posts you need to create your fields, and the chalk or flags, you will have to come up with a budget. Thankfully, there are a few different things that you can do with a small budget to get the accommodations that you need. Here are a few things to consider if you want the fields to be considered real sporting facilities and if you want them to be adequate for your athletes and fans.

Portable Toilets

People will need a place where they can go to the restroom when they are at practice or watching a game, even if it's a portable toilet. You can look into single toilet units, or larger units that include sinks. You will have to determine your budget, how much you want to pay for the unit, and what the cost will be to empty it and maintain it. If you want sinks, you'll need to have plumbing on the site to hook up to the unit, but this can be costly and inconvenient.


Do you want everyone to be forced to sit on lawn chairs, or would it be easier to have a couple sets of bleachers put on the property? Talk with a bleacher installation company, such as Decking Systems, to see if they have retractable options that are leased during the season or if you can get some wood or metal bleachers installed that are affordable. This is going to really make the area look like a real sports complex.

Portable Clocks and Score Boards

You can get large portable clocks and score boards for the location, so people know if the clock is running down and what the score is. These units will also be good for the athletes so they can see what is going on in the game when they are on the field. These may need an electrical hookup or can be run off a generator or automobile battery.

If you are turning an empty field into a sports complex for your organization or club, these are just a few details you need to budget for. These accessories are going to make the fields seem like they were designed for your teams and for competition, and they can be enjoyed by all.
