A state-of-the-art sports facility will soon be attracting thousands in Kern County, according to Dignity Health, the sponsors behind the project.

Gameday Sports Academy, the facility's founders, says the project will cost about $1.5 million and will be the first indoor multi-sport complex in Kern County.

The 55,000 square foot development will officially be called "Dignity Health Sports Complex, Event and Educational Center," according to GSA.

The center would include 5 collegiate basketball, volleyball and futsal courts. Several non-profit organizations, educational and empowerment programs will be regularly serving the facility's members, according to GSA.

GSA invited the community to it's first press conference at the facility Wednesday morning.

At the event, GSA founder Kyle Shiloh told 23ABC News that all Kern County residents can purchase a membership to use the facility.

A price has not been finalized for the membership, but Shiloh said it would be affordable for everyone.
