Auburndale searching for sponsors for sports complex

AUBURNDALE - Auburndale city commissioners decided at a meeting Monday to allow a search for corporate sponsorship of the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex. They also decided to extend a contract for lighting of the soccer complex and reviewed the city's capital outlay budget for the next two years.

The city of Auburndale will get 40 percent of the sponsorship revenue, Polk County Tourism and Sports Marketing will get 20 percent and the Florida Youth Soccer Association will receive 20 percent. Auburndale will also reserve 10 percent for a maintenance improvement fund for the soccer facilities, and Polk County Tourism and Sports Marketing will put 10 percent toward fulfilling the sponsorships.

The options for naming are plentiful. Anyone seeking to rename the complex itself can pay $5 million over 10 years or, for the baseball facilities, $2.5 million over 10 years. A single field costs $15,000 to name.

City manager Bobby Green said that several corporate sponsors have already been found.
