The 11 acre property on Washington Avenue... has been home to the Belpre Soccer Club for the last 17 years.

But the family who owns the land is looking to sell.

Over 400 kids ranging from ages four to 17 play on the 14 fields and it's not only kids from Belpre that play there... but all across Washington County.

Club president, Tim Vaughan, is hoping the league can raise enough money in time to purchase the land themselves.

"If these fields aren't available we really don't know what we're going to do because this is a great piece of property for us. If we don't have the fields I don't know what our options are at this point. We can try to find another piece of property. I don't think we're going to find something as perfect as this is," says Vaughan.
