The Metro Youth Football Association reached an agreement with the Cedar Rapids Parks & Recreation Department Friday to build two new football fields at the Tuma Soccer Complex.
The MYFA will keep its three lighted fields at 1100 Ahearn Drive NE in Cedar Rapids, giving the program a total of five fields for games. The two new fields at the Tuma Complex will not be lighted.
The MYFA, in operation for more than 40 years, has been looking for additional fields as the program continues to grow.
"I think it's exciting," said Roger Gruwell, a vice president with the organization. "It gives us the opportunity to not only expand our league but expand our year-end tournament as well."
