A large indoor soccer complex is set to open in Astoria this fall.

The facility, which will be 10,000 square feet in size, is expected to open in a single-story industrial building at 36-39 35th St.

The new complex will be operated by Socceroof, a Brooklyn-based company that currently runs an indoor soccer facility in Sunset Park. The company plans to open a third indoor soccer complex later this year in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

News of the company’s opening in Astoria was first reported by the Commercial Observer. The publication noted that Socceroof officials penned a five-year lease to take up around half of the 20,000 square foot building.

Details on the layout of the new soccer complex have not yet been revealed.

The company’s flagship facility in Sunset Park consists of 10 small pitches that are typically leased out to groups to play games.

The complex has an indoor and outdoor bar that can be hired for private events and parties.

Jordan Gosin, a real estate broker who worked with Socceroof to secure the lease, said that the opening of the Queens venue has been five years in the making since the company needed a large space without any columns.

“It’s pretty hard to find that type of space,” Gosin told the Commercial Observer.

The announcement comes on the heels of The Astoria Sports Complex, which was located nearby at 34-38 38th St., closing.

The 53,550 square-foot complex, which shut down in July, housed a gym, pool and turf fields. Its owner unsuccessfully tried to expand the building in order to construct an indoor soccer field and ice rink. The plans were rejected by the City Planning Commission.

The building has since been sold to a self-storage company.
