Rossett Sports Centre in Harrogate is to begin repairing its 3G artificial football pitch after achieving its £10,000 fundraising target.
The appeal was launched last month after the pandemic affected finances and delayed the repairs.
The pitch is usually open to 1,000 people each week but covid meant this number was massively reduced.
But a successful crowdfunding campaign means work can begin.
In a statement on the fundraising page, the centre manager, Josh Lyon, said the total cost of the repairs is £160,000.
He added the pitch was set to reopen to the public later this month:
“A massive thank you for your support in helping us reach our £10,000 target. This money is going directly towards the 3G pitch replacement project. Works on the new pitch is imminently commencing and the new state of the art facility should be back open to the local community in late June.
“Your support is massively appreciated by Rossett and your local sporting community.”

The current total is nearing £11,000. Mr Lyon has said any extra funding would go towards new goals.
The sports centre on Pannal Ash Road is run by Rossett School and is open to the public outside of school hours, seven days a week.
Its full-sized 3G pitch provides space for both five-a-side groups and full team matches.
