The Legacy Campaign will enable the Friends of the Bowl to achieve Phase 4 of the master plan to enhance the fan experience at SMF Field and create a quality sporting experience for all user groups. Athletes, officials and fans will all benefit from these improvements. Upgrades will ensure the facilities are safe, increase daily usage, better position the Gordie Howe Sports Complex for major events in the future, and create a lasting impact on our community’s quality of life.

The Legacy Campaign will complete the vision for Saskatoon Minor Football Field and enhance the Gordie Howe Softball Diamond and Clarence Downey Speed Skating Oval.
