City Council Approves Incentive Agreement for Sports Complex

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – At Tuesday’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting, Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb and the City Council approved a $1.85 million five-year business incentive agreement between the Corpus Christi B Corporation (Type B Board) and Next Sports Company (NSC). This agreement is considered a grant and is not required to be paid back unless outlined milestones are missed. The United Soccer League quality training center and stadium will consist of eight multi-purpose fields to be used for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, flag football, and cheerleading for both children and adults.

NSC plans to build a sports complex on Old Brownsville Road near the Gabe Lozano Golf Course. The approved grant will help with infrastructure improvements associated with the sports complex. The City’s incentive of $1.85 million will leverage over $15 million in private sector investment.

NSC’s project will create nearly 100 full-time and part-time jobs for residents. The chosen location also helps the local economy by giving visiting athletes three nearby hotels and several eateries.

The Corpus Christi Regional Economic Development Corporation received and approved the Type B Board’s application earlier this year. In September, the Type B Board approved the business incentive agreement at its monthly meeting.
