London, ON, October 28, 2019: At 10am on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Mayor Ed Holder, City of London will be joined by London City Councilors, Ontario Soccer, local sporting associations and the business community to break ground with The Tricar Group as they unveil their latest development of a new turf sports field in London that will be home to London TFC Soccer Academy.
Coming this spring, and greatly anticipated by the local soccer and sporting community, the property behind Tricar’s head office on Colonel Talbot Road will come to life with lights, energy, and community excitement when players of all levels fill the field as training for the new soccer season begins.
“We are committed to improving our great community in as many ways as possible, and this is another example of that commitment,” says Adam Carapella, Vice President of Operations, The Tricar Group. “We saw this as an opportunity to develop otherwise unused land into a recreation facility that will give back to the community we live and work in. We are really excited that Tricar Field will benefit children of all ages for many years to come.”
“We are thrilled that Tricar is creating this opportunity for active community members in London and area. Participating in sports is so beneficial for children and families, we’re grateful Tricar Field is providing such a modern outdoor facility for everyone to enjoy,” says Ian Campbell, owner of FC London and London TFC Academy.
Scott Stafford, Managing Director of Parks and Recreation at City of London agrees. “It’s wonderful when companies like Tricar invest in our City’s recreational activities to expand London’s resources and provide children and families with an opportunity to practice and gain skills.”
In addition to being the home training facility for London TFC, Tricar is actively working with partners to provide the field for use by kids sports camps and other recreational endeavors within the City. Turf sport fields allow for multiple uses and provide many benefits over traditional grass fields including increased time of use, improved performance and safety, less need for constant upkeep and no need for water, or organic or chemical maintenance. Tricar Field is London’s only 100% privately funded outdoor turf sports field. Users will enjoy the benefits of a longer season, always ready for use with a beautiful lush fresh cut appearance regardless of the weather.
