A diverse inner-city destination to live, work and play.
The Calgary Multisport Fieldhouse Society has been advocating since 2008 for a world-class field house to accommodate the growth of amateur sports. The proposed CalgaryNEXT project supported the development of Calgary’s amateur sports and provide a new home for professional teams in a state-of-the-art facility. The development of the West Village is rooted in creating a vibrant, public destination that reinforces Calgary’s character and connects people through an integrated system of pathways and nodes of activity. The West Village conceptual development extends Calgary’s urban core, encouraging social engagement, recreation and public gatherings.
The multi-purpose event centre and stadium/field house concept is a covered field house with retractable seating, which accommodates a CFL football field/FIFA soccer pitch surrounded by an eight-lane running track. Aside from soccer and football, the facility supports track and field, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, and badminton in one configurable space. The facility provides multi-purpose exercise rooms and strength and conditioning facilities open to the community.
