In late 2010, Bridgeport acquired 128 acres of land from the nearby Clinton Country Club. Approximately 30 acres were slated for the University's new $4.6 million Soccer and Track & Field Complex. The recently completed first phase of the complex includes temporary bleacher seating for 500, with future plans to build a 10,000-seat stadium around the field. An integral part of the new Athletic Complex is a state-of-the-art sound system designed to cover the entire playing field, as well as the future stadium area. The system is based around Community Professional's R-Series weather-resistant loudspeakers. As Mark Van Hoosier of Davenport, IA-based Electronic Communications Systems (ECS) explains, the design challenge was to provide voice reinforcement for a 10,000-seat stadium, as well as controlling that sound to minimize reflections into neighboring residential areas.
