The Chicago Blaze have begun work on a new clubhouse and bar at their Lemont, Ill. facility.
The club is selling shares in its corporation, the Chicago Blaze Building Corporation, in order to raise $1 million to fund the project.
To date the club corporation has received investments from at least 16 people and has raised $150,000 - 15% of their goal (if the club fails to meet its goal it has developed dividend payment plan). The corporation has set June, 2012 as the deadline for raising the rest of the funds.
According to corporation communications, they do have the option to move forward with the plan even if they don't raise the entire $1 million through investors.
Plans are also in place to add a fourth pitch to the Blaze complex.
Below, artist's renderings of the planned clubhouse.
