BMO Field – construction description
In late September 2014 works began behind the east stand of BMO Field. Since then, thanks to John Hadden’s efforts we’re able to show you how the works are going on what will be nearly 8,400-seat expansion of the stadium.
As part of the project both east and west sides will get a significant upgrade of their hospitality zones, including 15 new boxes/lounges in the east. For the first time ever the stadium will also get most of the fans under cover. Resting on four pillars in each corner, the roof will initially protect three sides, but may be expanded over the north end too.
All of the changes should be implemented by 2016, but the stadium may undergo further works behind goals. Should both end stands be expanded and covered, BMO Field may offer over 40,000 seats, mostly covered.
