Martinsville's Smith River Sports Complex has plans to finish a sixth soccer field. Officials say it's not just about love of the game- they say more fields, means more money for the area too.

With more fields, they can host bigger tournaments. In the past, they have had to turn away as many as 30 to 40 teams. And with the ability to host more teams, they say will come more local spending.

"More people spending money, more people staying here, more shopping- all those good things!" said Kimberly Payne with the Smith River Sports Complex.

Grading has already started on the field. Day to day, we're told it will primarily be used for youth soccer.
