Naming rights to Fort Saskatchewan's new high performance sports field have been signed to a local general contractor.
 
Industrial, commercial and residential general contractor, Taurus Projects Group, has secured the naming rights to the sports field under construction by the Dow Centennial Centre.
 
"I see Taurus as being a very strong contributor to the community and in essence, we’re part of a much larger team— the Fort Saskatchewan team," said Fab Loranger, owner of Taurus Projects Group. "We are thrilled to be part of this new sports facility and excited to be part of such a great project, right here in our community,”
 
Owned and operated by the City of Fort Saskatchewan, the facility is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2018.
 
The FIFA-sized artificial turf can host football, field hockey, field lacrosse and soccer. The facility will boast four change rooms for players and another for officials, administration and storage, a concession area, a ticket booth and 1000-spectator capacity.
 
Groups can begin booking the space in May; the field will also be home to local high school and minor football teams.
 
An official ceremony with representatives from Taurus and local sports teams will be held towards the end of September.
 
The entire project will cost $9.6 million.
