UPDATE at 11:45 p.m.
Delta College trustees approved a new soccer field by a 4-0 vote Tuesday night, paving the way for a new field to be in place possibly as soon as August 2015.
"Some mistakes were made on that practice field and so we're kind of trying to rectify some of those mistakes and finally get the field that was in the original plans out there for our soccer teams to play on," Delta College Athletic Director Dr. Daryl Arroyo said.
The new field will integrate the soccer program into the existing facilities for football and baseball.
"We have a field house out there. We have bathrooms, we have a concession stand," Arroyo said. "Only soccer doesn't use it."
"This is a facility that we absolutely need," Delta Board of Trustees President Taj Kahn said. "Soccer is growing in the United States tremendously."
