The Canadian Premier League is headed to Saskatchewan.
On Friday morning, the CPL revealed it has awarded the exclusive rights to an expansion club to Living Sky Sports and Entertainment Inc., a Saskatchewan-based company. The deal in principle is contingent upon LSSE building a soccer-specific stadium that meets the league’s standards.
LSSE has identified Prairieland Park in Saskatoon as its preferred site for a stadium. Prairieland Park is a 136-acre area located in the southeastern part of the city that hosts such events as the annual Saskatoon Exhibition, Western Canadian Crop Production Show, and horse racing at Marquis Downs. There is no specific timeline for the construction of the stadium.
