Soccer Centre Dome & Artificial Turf Field Upgrade

Calgary Soccer Centre Soccer Centre dome & artificial turf field upgrade

The Calgary Soccer Centre (CSC) currently has three outdoor artificial turf fields and one outdoor natural turf field. This project will upgrade the outdoor natural turf field to an artificial turf field and cover it with an air-supported structure (dome). We also will be upgrading the parking lot and storm water management at CSC.

Design

The scope of work proposed in this project includes the following:

  • Upgrading the natural turf field to a full FIFA size 11 vs. 11 indoor artificial turf field.
  • Building an air-supported structure (dome) over the new artificial turf field.
  • A new amenity building that will include participant change rooms, a referee change room and a universal public washroom.
  • Improving the parking lot infrastructure by paving the west parking lot and adding approximately 100 additional parking spots.
  • Upgrading the storm water management to prevent localized flooding. 

Benefit

This project will produce a full-sized indoor rectangular field, providing citizens with a high-quality, year-round practice and play space.  

The field will complement existing amenities at the CSC, accommodating a broad range of sport and recreation opportunities and increasing the CSC’s capacity to host tournaments.

Investment in this project will generate approximately 150 jobs and contribute $21. 2 million to the GDP1.

Impact

Access to most Calgary Soccer Centre facilities will remain open throughout construction.

The natural outdoor field will be closed for the duration of construction. Access to the CSC, Annex and outdoor fields one, two and three will remain open.

Tree impacts

  • The City of Calgary works to preserve as many trees as possible, however, some tree loss is unavoidable.
  • Approximately 89 trees will be removed and 82 new trees will be planted as part of the project.
