Calgary’s first Multisport Fieldhouse Stadium will be a multi-functional space, giving Calgarians access to year-round, state-of-the-art field sport and fitness facilities.
The multisport field centre will house a FIFA regulation pitch and a CFL regulation football field in a single configurable space. We will be able to host a major soccer match in the morning and turn over the space for football for Stampeders in the afternoon.
At the same time, court sports such as basketball, volleyball and badminton can by played. Beyond soccer and football uses, track and field, training and events will occupy the main field zone.
Fitness enthusiasts will be able to take advantage of multi-purpose exercise rooms and strength and conditioning facilities. Calgary runners can enjoy an indoor, 9-lane, 400-metre running track.
Since 2008, the mission for the Calgary Multisport Fieldhouse Society (CMFS) has been to bring a world class facility like this to Calgary. They are driven by the need and that Calgary is one of few major cities in Canada without a Fieldhouse.
A fieldhouse would replace McMahon Stadium, the oldest CFL stadium in Canada (1960), and increase amateur and professional sports uses beyond football. This would enable McMahon Stadium lands to be considered for future redeveloped and centralize the fieldhouse in the heart of the city at CalgaryNEXT.
This animation depicts configurations of the proposed fieldhouse for different uses. We have not included a exterior view of CalgaryNEXT or roof so that you can see the complexe’s concouses and functional spaces.
The fieldhouse will be the new training and game-day facility for the Calgary Stampeders. It will provide a comfortable climate-controlled indoor experience for players and fans.
