Report: Real Salt Lake preparing to build new soccer facility, possibly move academy to Utah

Real Salt Lake may be looking to bounce back on the field in 2016, but off the field they are as busy as ever in fulfilling the vision of the club.

Team owner Dell Loy Hansen has plans to build a new "world-class" soccer facility in the Salt Lake Valley, according to a report from the Salt Lake Tribune's Christopher Kamrani on Wednesday.

The facility would be used for training by pro players, but could also be used for academy players, with Hansen mooting the possibility that Real Salt Lake's academy, currently located at Casa Grande, Ariz., could be moved to Utah in the future.
