MATTHEWS, N.C. -- Plans for a huge sporting complex in Matthews are finally moving forward.

Mecklenburg County commissioners have approved $7 million to start work on the Matthews Sportsplex.

The project will have 12 athletic fields and a 2,700-seat stadium for soccer and other sporting events.

It would sit on the corner of interstate 485 and East Independence Boulevard.
   
Construction was supposed to begin back in 2008, but the economic downturn delayed funding.
