Hoover celebrated today its newest star – the Finley Center, a state-of-the-art indoor sports and events facility that will bring the nation to the city’s doorstep.

The city hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting at the center, located within the newly revitalized Hoover Metropolitan Complex. The Finley Center is expected to create an annual economic impact of between $27 million and $33 million, and bring an additional 125 jobs to the area.

“We’re very excited about the opening of the Finley Center,” said Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato. “We believe it’s going to be a great tourist attraction and will draw people from all over the United States, particularly youth traveling sports clubs and their families. It will also be a great draw for conventions and other community events.”The 155,000-square-foot facility is named for Bob Finley, a longtime head coach at Hoover’s W.A. Berry High School. While at Berry, Finley developed award-winning athletic programs few schools could match. He was selected as a member of the Alabama High School Coaches Hall of Fame in 1992 for his leadership on the field and in the gym.
