National Sports Center - {CATEGORY}

The National Sports Center (NSC) is a 600-acre (2. 4 km²) multi-sport complex located in Blaine, Minnesota that includes a soccer stadium, over 50 full-sized soccer fields, a golf course, a velodrome, a meeting and convention facility, and an eight-sheet ice rink, the Schwan Super Rink, which is the largest ice facility of its type in the world. It hosted the USA Broomball National Championships in 2007. After efforts led by Blaine Mayor Elwyn Tinklenberg, the National Sports Center opened in 1990 after 1987 legislature created the Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission and appropriated $14. 7 million for the construction of the NSC. The facility welcomes over 3. 3 million visitors annually, making it the most-visited sports facility in the State of MinnesotaThe Herb Brooks Foundation, the foundation created by the legendary hockey coach's family, is partnering with the National Sports Center to develop the Herb Brooks Center, a state-of-the-art dryland and ice hockey training facility that is part of the Schwan Super Rink. Every year the National Sports Center plays host to the Schwan’s USA CUP: the largest international youth soccer tournament in North America with over 1,000 teams and participants from 22 countries. The soccer stadium has a large grandstand along the west sideline of the field and smaller grandstands on the opposite sideline and on either end. The United States women's national soccer team has played many home matches at the NSC, which has also hosted many United States youth national team games. The largest crowd in NSC history was for a 2001 women's soccer match between the United States and Canada, when 15,615 fans watched a 1-0 U. S. victory. The NSC played host to the defunct Minnesota Thunder of the USL First Division. The stadium served as the Thunder's home from 1990-2003 and from May 24, 2008 until the end of the 2009 season when the team folded. On May 12, 2008, the Thunder announced they would be returning to the National Sports Center for their home games. As part of this move, the track around the pitch was removed, the playing surface was extended closer to the stands, and additional seating was added all around the field, increasing the capacity to 12,000, with a possibility of further expansion to 20,000. The move was made for multiple reasons; perhaps most important was pressure from the USL to move to a soccer-specific stadium.
