Posted: Updated:

Marshall University students will soon have a new soccer complex.

University officials and others gathered today to break ground on the new eight million dollar facility.

Former Thundering Herd quarterback Chad Pennington was on hand to speak to the crowd.

The new complex will be built on the site of the former Veteran's Memorial Field House which was torn down.

Officials say they're excited to get the project started.

The new field is scheduled to be complete by next August.
