RANTOUL, IL. (WAND-TV) -- After starting construction back in January of 2020, the grand opening for the Rantoul Family Sports Complex took place Saturday afternoon as people from across central Illinois gathered to witness a ribbon cutting ceremony. 

In week six of gameplay at the complex, the full completion of the area is just a few weeks away. In preparation for that time, Rantoul community leadership gathered to express their views for what they want the complex to do for the community, both from an economic and community standpoint.
