The complex of fields will be called the Chief Louis/Pronto Soccer Field, Soccer Quest said in a press release, recognizing a former TIB chief and Pronto Enterprises, a sponsor who is responsible for maintenance of the fields.

The fields are expected to be ready for play by May 11, and a new adult co-ed league, administered by Soccer Quest, will play the first games at the facility. Soccer Quest academy teams will also hold training sessions and games at the complex.

A clubhouse is expected to be built on-site.

The fields will be located next to the Tim Hortons and Petro Canada near Shuswap Road.
