New soccer complex celebrates grand opening in Cambridge

By Justine Fraser

The much-anticipated Cambridge Soccer Complex off Fountain Street is now open to the public to use freely.

It cost the city about $15 million to build, and is home to seven new soccer fields as well as a central fieldhouse.

Some fields are by reservation only and are used by specific groups and some are open for public use. For more information or to book a field, residents can contact

The complex also gives Conestoga College Condor athletes “a true home field.”

Conestoga College contributed nearly $2 million for the project. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada contributed another $250,000 for a naming sponsorship.

Vice President of Conestoga College, Trish Weigel Green said in a statement to CityNews 570 that the new facility will nurture up-and-coming athletes.

“This complex offers an exceptional opportunity to expand our recreational programming, bring in provincial and national soccer and rugby competition, and provide the opportunity for students to engage in outdoor sports and activities.”

The soccer complex located in Preston on 880 Linden Dr. took a couple years to build. A Grand Opening event was held last Saturday at the new complex to welcome the community in.

“This is a momentous occasion for our community as we proudly open the doors to our state-of-the-art soccer complex,” said City of Cambridge Mayor, Jan Liggett.

“This facility is more than just a place to play; it’s a hub for community engagement, youth development, and a testament to our commitment to fostering a healthy, active lifestyle for all residents. We look forward to seeing countless memorable moments and future stars emerge from this field.”
