The Sports Factory Indoor turf facility has been a landmark on the Lincoln Park skyline and a familiar venue for soccer parents for 14 years now. However, that all changed during the snow storm of March 7 when, under severe weight and power failure, the “bubble” suffered irreparable damage forcing its closure.
We are delighted to announce that, after two months of planning and research, work is due to begin. The first step will be to remove the old facility and turf, before breaking ground on a new facility. The structure will stay similar to the old but with steel reinforcements for added safety. New state-of-the-art turf will also be installed.
With work beginning this coming week, The Sports Factory is planning to host a Grand Re-Opening on November 1st, just in time for their Winter Classes, tournaments, camps and leagues, as well as hosting winter training to the local clubs.
We will keep everyone updated with news and developments as the new structure takes shape.
