Living Sky Sports multi-purpose soccer stadium plans unveiled for Prairieland Park

Plans for a multi-purpose, open-air stadium in Saskatoon’s Prairieland Park were unveiled late Tuesday afternoon during a splashy media conference complete with seven guest speakers and a video presentation, which included renderings of what the stadium would look like.

“Our deal with the Canadian Premier League is they’ve awarded Living Sky Sports Entertainment the exclusive rights to launch an expansion team in Saskatchewan, but the stipulation is you have to have a soccer-ready, FIFA-compliant soccer stadium to play in and Saskatoon doesn’t have that,” explained Al Simpson, CEO of Living Sky Sports and Entertainment.

“That’s why we are doing what we are doing so we can have and meet the conditions of the Canadian Premier League. We think the city of Saskatoon deserves it. We think the province of Saskatchewan deserves it.”

The project is estimated to have a price tag of between $24-million and $30-million. Tuesday’s news conference marked the launch of a public campaign to drum up financial support for the project.
