An impassioned pitch was made to Saskatoon council on Monday in an effort to obtain city funding for a proposed new soccer stadium. Council was asked by representatives of Prairieland Park and Living Sky Sports and Entertainment for $8 million over eight years to help fund the projected $28-million stadium intended to become the home for a new Canadian Premier League soccer team. Prairieland Park’s CEO told council he believes the soccer league will eventually rival the Canadian Football League in attendance.
