Brampton's New $1.7m Soccer Facility to Open Next Week

BRAMPTON, ON, Aug. 9th, 2017 /CNW/ - Brampton soccer players will have a new state-of-the-art soccer facility available to them with the August completion of the brand new artificial turf sports field and running track on Conestoga Drive.

The outdoor sports field features Fieldturf's premium "Revolution 360" turf, the same turf chosen for many NFL and MLS team stadiums including the New England Patriots, Seattle Sounders and Atlanta Falcons. The full-size sports field will be marked for soccer, rugby and lacrosse and is equipped with a removable divider net system to sub-divide it into 4 smaller 60m x 30m 7v7 soccer fields. A new 6-lane 400m athletics track will also be installed. The field and track will be available for evening use with the addition of a new LED-lighting system.

The facility is located at Heart Lake Secondary School at 296 Conestoga Drive in Brampton and was built following a joint agreement between Footy Sevens soccer leagues and the Peel District School Board

During the school day, the school and PDSB have exclusive use of the field and track facilities.

In the evenings and on weekends, Footy Sevens will be organising adult recreational 7v7 soccer leagues as well as their Footy For All children's soccer programs. The fields will be available for rental by other sports organisations and community groups.
