SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Wesleyan officials say a new athletic complex will be built in phases over several years.

Demolition of the university's current Glenn Martin Stadium is set to begin Jan. 9. The first phase of construction will include building football and soccer fields, a running track, lights for the fields and resurfacing tennis courts. Temporary seating and other amenities will be built for the 2014 football season.

The Salina Journal reports the second phase, construction of a new stadium, is expected to start in November 2014. The third phase will be construction of a new fieldhouse.

Wesleyan president Matthew Thompson said Wednesday that funds raised so far will cover more than half of the estimated $7.5 million project, including all of the first phase.
