Kokomo is set to get its own professional soccer team.
Mayor Greg Goodnight and MKE Sports & Entertainment made the announcement Monday. Goodnight says the games will begin next year.
“Basically the latter part of May through July and I think they play seven or eight home games, seven or eight away games,” Goodnight says.
He says there's no taxpayer investment and the squad will share a home stadium with the Kokomo Jackrabbits summer college league baseball team.
