AUSTIN, Texas (May 13, 2014) – On Friday, May 9, 2014, the Charlotte Soccer Academy held a Groundbreaking event at the future site of the OrthoCarolina Sportsplex in Pineville, North Carolina. The event included appearances by Charlotte Soccer Academy members, players, families, and community supporters.
The OrthoCarolina Sportsplex will be designed and managed by Beaufort Design Build, LLC and Samet Corporation, both of which will be working closely with Carolina Sportsplex and the Charlotte Soccer Academy (CSA). The future site, which will be the permanent home of the CSA, will feature four synthetic turf fields, one Artificial Premiership Turf field, and one natural grass Premiership Turf field. The synthetic surfaces will feature Hellas Construction’s Matrix Turf, a product line recognized for its great combination of properties for light deflection, system stability, and enhanced playability.

With over 4,500 players— 2,100 players within the Competitive Program and over 2,500 players in the Recreation Program— , CSA is composed of over 175 teams. CSA prides itself for providing all levels of play regardless of age, ability or gender.
