Members of the Willmeng Construction team were special guests at the opening match of the 2021 Phoenix Rising FC season on Friday, April 30.
The Willmeng Team wrapped up construction on Rising’s exceptional new stadium and training facility, and the team christened its new home with a 4-1 win over the San Diego Loyal Soccer Club. The new facility is located on the Gila River Indian Community just south of Phoenix and is part of the Wild Horse Pass sports and entertainment development that is growing near the Wild Horse Pass Casino.
“Willmeng is truly grateful to be a part of this winning team,” said Willmeng CEO James Murphy. “It is even more rewarding to contribute to this wonderful facility that will serve the surrounding communities for years to come.”The team, led by Willmeng as the general contractor, began work on the facility in September of 2020 and that work was on display for all to see on Friday. The complex is complete with two full practice fields, as well as a field that the fans can enjoy as green space before and after the match. The stadium features nearly 10,000 seats, almost double the amount available at the club’s old facility in Tempe. There are now permanent locker room facilities for the teams and the club’s front office was also built on site.
