Residents of Syracuse’s Northside are about to get a soccer field, but they’ll have to wait until next spring.  The new fields were unveiled at Schiller Park Tuesday.  The space is large enough to hold two youth-sized or one regulation soccer field.  The sport has been gaining steam throughout the city, thanks to its popularity among the refugee community.  Mayor Stephanie Miner says she realized how important the game is to that community and that it was about time they had a field to play on.
