Charlottetown football club left ‘homeless’ after former field left in state of disrepair

Club ideally wants city to invest in new multi-use artificial turf field

February 13, 2024  By Turf & Rec

A football club that organizes league play for Charlottetown, P.E.I. youth in two age divisions has been left homeless with the spring season approaching.

The Charlottetown Privateers saw their home field on Longworth Avenue shut down last year due to safety concerns associated with its state of disrepair. To date, there are no other regulation size fields available in the city on which the club’s 186 members can play tackle and flag football.

Although the club is actively looking for other places to play, it wants the city to come through.

A club official says the best solution would be for the city to invest in a new multi-use synthetic turf field that could also accommodate such other sports as soccer, rugby, lacrosse and cricket.
