It’s an exciting couple of days for us as we are finally starting to see the turf laid on the new field. It’s getting closer and closer to completion and to the start of our adult leagues and kids programs. After months of the heavy construction of making sure the base underneath the turf is perfect, the giant rolls of turf are finally being rolled out and stitched together to form the field. We have an amazing crew of installers from Fieldturf here to lay the Revolution 360 turf and the care and attention that they put into getting the field just right is incredible.
There are large sections of the field already covered and within a couple of days all of the area inside the inner oval of the track will be turf.
All of the lines that run side to side across the field come already woven into the turf. In the photo below, you can see the centre line of the full size soccer field, flanked by the blue sidelines of 7v7 fields 2 and 3. When we are playing 7v7 with the field divided into 4, the removable divider net will run the length of the centre line, keeping the ball close at hand for all the 7v7 games.
What about the other field lines?
All of the lines which run in the other direction, like the sides of the penalty boxes and the centre circle etc. are cut into the turf after it is laid, so all of the lines are permanently part of the turf right from the start. After that the “infill” is added to the turf surface the sand and rubber mixture gives the turf the familiar feel that is ideal for the soccer, rugby, lacrosse and other sports that will be played there.
If you would like to get on the field, there are a number of way to do so:
Join one of our Footy Sevens 7v7 soccer leagues which begin in late August. We’ve got men’s women’s and coed soccer available from Sunday to Thursday. You can currently save up to $200 off of the cost of joining one of our leagues.
Play in the Kicking Cancer’s Butt Charity Tournament and raise money to fight cancer here in Brampton. We’re hosting our first charity soccer tournament at the field on Saturday, August 26th and all of the team fees will be donated directly to the William Osler Health Service Foundation’s oncology unit.
Sign your kids up for Footy For All Kids programs. We’ve got fall soccer programs for kids age 4-9 at the new field beginning in the first week of September.
Rent the field: If you are looking to rent the field, it is available to rent as either a full size soccer, lacrosse, rugby or other sport field or as smaller, individual 7v7 soccer fields.
