The Hudson Sports Complex (HSC) announces that the facility’s official Grand Opening will take place on Sat., Jun. 1 at 12:30 p.m. at the indoor and outdoor sports and recreation complex, located at 122 State School Rd. in Warwick. Admission and parking are free to all attendees.
The event will be highlighted by a Charity All-Star Game to benefit the Beautiful People organization and will also feature shows, tournaments, activities for kids, food, and more. Winners of two tickets to an English Premier League game, including flight and accommodations, will be announced on that day.
“We are extremely excited to have the Hudson Sports Complex opening on June 1. We hope to be a big part of the Warwick community and we welcome children and adults to come see our facility and participate in the programs we offer,” said owner Christian Fuchs, English Premier League player for Leicester City, who, with his wife, Raluca, owns several other Academy locations in New York and also Europe.
The HSC will provide such services as individual and group skills and strength training as well as space for team practices and games and tournaments for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, and football.
Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton said, “Everyone in Warwick is excited to have Christian and Raluca here in Warwick, not only because of their expertise in the sports arena, but also because of their obvious commitment to being part of our community. We could not be more pleased to welcome what we know will be the premier sports training facility in the entire Hudson Valley and Metro New York area.”
Village of Warwick Mayor Michael Newhard added, “There is a lot of excitement about the coming Fox Soccer Academy and the Hudson Sports Complex. We welcome Christian and Raluca Fuchs and their vision of creating a facility that has international connections, premier athletic training programs, and a philosophy of inclusion. This is a great addition to what the Warwick Valley and the Hudson Valley have to offer, and I know it will have a positive effect on Warwick’s future.”
