Post Falls soccer club to build new facility, fields
Timbers-Thorns North FC starts $2.4M projectAugust 30th, 2018
Coeur d’Alene-based soccer club Timbers-Thorns North FC is building a new administrative office, an indoor soccer field, three full-sized outdoor fields, and a parking lot, according to permits filed with the Kootenai County building department.
Located on 9.5 acres at 8049 N. Huetter Road in Post Falls, the project is valued at $2.4 million, permits show.
In 2016, Sting Timbers FC said in a press release it planned to develop a $1.5 million soccer complex. At the time, the facility was anticipated to be able to host 75 more games a year.
The facility was originally planned to be completed in 2017, the release states. The organization had to raise about $1.5 million to complete the project, which the club named “A Field for All Seasons.”
Mongan Construction Services is listed as the contractor on the project, and John Elxemberg is listed as the architect.
According to the permit, footings for the building have passed inspection.
In mid-2016, Sting Premier Soccer Club changed its name when it joined the Adidas Portland Timbers Alliance — the second club in Idaho and seventh in the northwest to join the alliance.
Sting Timbers FC was established in 1984 as a nonprofit organization. Mike Thompson has been the club’s director of coaching since 2011.
