New indoor soccer facility being built in West Oahu

From Pacific Business News

“The owner of the Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenas in West Oahu is developing a 52,000-square-foot indoor soccer facility nearby that will become one of the first of its kind to be built in Hawaii, the owner confirmed to PBN Tuesday.

Richard Pentecost, a 35-year soccer veteran and former semi-pro player, will call the new facility, “808 Futsal,” to be built on a two-acre vacant lot in the Kapolei Business Park at 1010 Munu St.

Futsal, which is translated as “room football,” is played on a smaller field, typically indoors.

The new facility, which will be located across the street from Pentecost’s inline hockey facility, will include three futsal courts, each 132 feet by 76 feet, with two located downstairs next to each other and another elevated court.

There will be 92 parking stalls, although users of the futsal facility will be able to use the parking lot of the inline hockey arena.

“I think futsal is going to be a success in the state because it’s the normal transition from soccer to futsal,” Pentecost said. “It improves the outdoor soccer players’ skills.” Read more at Pacific Business News
