Thank you for supporting the Bowl Field Goal Campaign! The community generously committed over $11.6 million for the upgrades to Saskatoon Minor Football Field. You turfed it!

In 2013, the Friends of the Bowl Foundation introduced the Field Goal Campaign, an $11 Million fundraising campaign to renew the Bowl at Gordie Howe Park. The intended result was to modernize the Bowl into a CFL regulation football field by replacing the existing grass field with artificial turf and upgraded lighting, scorekeeping, and sound systems as well as a new clubhouse.

The Bowl is the past and present home of Saskatoon football programs, hosting Saskatoon high school football and Hilltops football since 1960. With the upgrades to the facility, it is now also the home of the Saskatoon Valkyries and Saskatoon Minor Football. Prior to upgrades, approximately 130 hours of football was played at the Bowl each year. With the new upgrades to the field, over 1,200 hours of football and soccer will be played in 2016.

The Friends of the Bowl fundraised $4.4 Million for the Phase 1 upgrades and hosted the Grand Opening of Saskatoon Minor Football Field on September 6, 2014. Phase 2 fundraising achieved its goal of $6.6 Million at the end of 2015, and hosted the Grand Opening of Gordie Howe Sports Complex on April 28, 2016. Phase 3 achieved its goal of $600,000 in early 2016, and will complete the upgrades to the Plaza in summer of 2016.

A special thank you to Greg Yuel for chairing the campaign, and to our lead donors, the Yausie Weenk Family, for committing $2 Million to the project.

Thank you to all campaign donors for supporting the campaign!
