New Sports Dome and Facility Coming to Mississauga
Although Canadians have always loved athletic pursuits, we've been expanding our horizons and embracing a greater variety of sports in recent years—namely soccer.
Maybe it's because of years of World Cup fever, but professional soccer has gained more traction in North America in recent years and Mississauga residents are working to elevate the sport in the community.
And it looks like it's working.
Last year, Stadium Sport Leagues launched an adult recreational soccer league called the Mississauga Stadium Soccer League (MSSL). The organization says that it had over 200 teams and 3,000 participants register for its fall, winter and summer seasons.
The league was held at the brand new Mississauga Stadium sports facility (located in the Courtneypark and McLaughlin area) and is managed and operated by Razor Management in partnership with the Peel District School Board.
Now, the league is rebranding and building a sizeable new facility.
The organization says the Mississauga Stadium is scheduled to open its two-storey clubhouse building in September. The clubhouse will boast approximately 17,000 sq. ft. of space and will be located adjacent to the full-sized FIFA regulation turf field.
The clubhouse is in its final phase of construction and will have classrooms, meeting rooms, reception desks, fitness spaces, washrooms, and change rooms to accompany the state of the art turf field and track.
During the winter months, there will be a seasonal dome that will cover the track and field.
Access to the dome structure will be possible through the clubhouse itself.
The organization says it's also made a few other changes.
"In order to expand into other sports and facilities, the Mississauga Stadium Soccer League has rebranded to become the Stadium Sport Leagues, as of August 1, 2019," the organization said in a news release.
The rebranded organization says it will now offer a larger variety of recreational sports leagues and operate at two additional premier sports facilities in the GTA (Central Tech Stadium & Monarch Park Stadium, both in Toronto).
Starting in the fall, it will offer adult recreational soccer, flag football, ultimate frisbee, softball, rugby, and spikeball leagues at all three locations.
