MADRAS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Madras White Buffaloes soccer teams have their new home.

Madras High School held a ribbon-cutting this week for its brand new soccer complex.

Erica Olivera, a 2019 Madras High alum and current collegiate soccer player at Westcliff University in California, gave a speech before the ribbon was cut, talking about the importance of the new complex.

"The love of the game has always been here," Olivera said. "What better time than now to take full advantage of this opportunity."

As part of the 2021 Jefferson County School District 509-J bond, the brand new complex includes fresh grass fields, locker rooms and bathrooms, concessions, a coach's office and lights -- all things the previous field lacked.
