The Ontario Soccer Association, the City of Vaughan and Toronto FC have have teamed up to bring TFC’s new USL Pro team to the city, to play out of a signifcantly revamped stadium field at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
“This agreement further enhances our ongoing relationship and strong partnership with Toronto FC and the City of Vaughan. More importantly, the investment in a facility such as this on the existing OSA complex will provide a significant boost not only to the soccer community but also to the area as a whole for years to come.,” said Ontario Soccer Association President Ron Smale. “Beyond TFC’s USL Pro team, we will be able to host high-level soccer competitions for League1 Ontario and the Ontario Player Development League at a first-class facility—a facility which can also be utilized by the City of Vaughan for other community events as well. This is a true partnership that will benefit everyone."
The first phase of the redevelopment is slated to be ready for play on Canada Day, July 1, 2015. When fully built out, the new facility will seat approximately 5000 people.
