Local soccer fans have reason to celebrate this year, there's a new professional soccer team in town bearing the colors orange, blue and white. 

The University of Cincinnati's Nippert Stadium will soon be a construction zone.

UC's board has approved the more than $80 million upgrade plan.

Athletic Director Whit Babcock says construction will begin in December and should wrap up in August 2015. The university says it is considering playing its 2014 games at Paul Brown Stadium.

As expected, the board also froze in-state tuition levels for next year.
