I would RENT the focal length to see if 300mm is what you really want. You might be happier with 400mm F/2.8, which is what I would use if I was covering the whole soccer/football field.

Also, look into a used 300mm f/2.8 non-IS. They are just as sharp as the IS version but much cheaper in the used market. It is plenty sharp for the work i do.
