The Greater Binghamton Sports Complex is the largest dome air-structure in the United States.[citation needed] The complex is located on Airport Road off Route 17 near the city of Binghamton, New York. The purpose of the structure is to house its full size soccer field. The total size of the complex measures over 125,000 square feet (11,600 m2) and contains two offices, a restaurant, cafeteria, and a party room. The skylight measuring 197’ 6” x 30’ 6 feet (1.8 m) allows natural light to enter the complex. The facility can house multiple sporting events at once and offers sports such as soccer, rugby union, lacrosse, baseball, and softball. There is also a driving range. The complex was also the 2009 home of the Binghamton Tiger Cats, a Women's Tackle Football team. By playing in the Complex the Tiger Cats became the first team to play indoors in the history of Women's Professional Football. The complex was engineered by Yeadon corporation and was inflated in under two weeks.
