Montreal suburb applies for federal, provincial funding to support indoor sports field

Cost of facility expected to be between $18M and $24M

The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, a suburb of Montreal, has applied for federal and provincial funding so that it can build a full-size indoor soccer field.

Although outdoor soccer fields are accessible to teams belonging to the local soccer association, the lack of an indoor facility prevents teams from practising all throughout the year. The president of the Dollard Soccer Club says having an indoor facility will entice more soccer enthusiasts to join, knowing they can play all year long.

A full-sized indoor field would also allow for the conversion into three mini fields for seven-against-seven play. A synthetic playing surface would also accommodate such other sports as rugby, baseball and football.

The expected cost of an indoor soccer field would be between $18 million and $24 million. It’s also unknown where the facility might be located.
