FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- You've probably heard the old saying, "If you build it, they will come."

That's the philosophy in Fulton where a new soccer and baseball field is under construction.

Fulton and Itawamba County have joined forces to haul in dirt and get it in shape for both sports.

City and county officials say this project becomes an important one in the ever-competitive realm of sports tournaments.

"That means more people coming into our city using our restaurants and our motels," Fulton Mayor Lynette Weatherford said.

"We've always had soccer, but it's just been one of our smaller programs. But this year, we've seen a big boost, and we're gonna need the fields for the upcoming tournaments," Park Director Mickey Russell said.
