Betty and Bobby Allison Sports Town facility opens in Springfield

The Betty and Bobby Allison Sports Town hosted a grand opening event Friday afternoon in Northwest Springfield.

The massive complex of athletic fields and indoor courts at 209 Airport Boulevard near Springfield-Branson National Airport has been hailed as a game-changer for the local youth sports scene.

Construction on the new center began in April 2021, which includes 12 outdoor courts and a 90,000+ square foot indoor facility with basketball and volleyball courts plus two indoor soccer fields.

“It took a long time,” said Stan Liedel, one of the developers on the project. “We think there’s a real need here in the Springfield area and it takes a long time to get these things up and running. So it’s just amazing to get to this day.”
