As part of the governor’s revised budget, Newsom proposed funding for a new athletic complex at the California School for the Deaf that will include a brand new soccer field.
The team made inspirational history last fall when they went undefeated in their regular season and reached the school’s first state championship game.
The Cubs went 12-1, with the only loss coming to Faith Baptist of Canoga Park in the Southern Section 8-Man Division 2 Finals.
In February, four players competed in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium and were honorary captains for the game’s coin toss.
A spokesman for the governor’s office said the $43 million project is to expand and replace the school’s existing grass athletic fields, specifically the soccer, track and field, softball, baseball and soccer fields, as well as lighting, bleachers and other facilities.
Construction work is scheduled to start in January 2025 and is expected to be completed by May 2026.
