WLU receives $2.5M from Waterloo for University Stadium upgrades


Wilfrid Laurier University will receive $2.5M in funding from the City of Waterloo to put towards upgrades for its University Stadium. This funding will be used to replace the stadium’s field, turf, scoreboard, and lighting, and will contribute to the installation of a new “winter bubble” cover that will allow the WLU facility to be used year-round. In exchange for this financial support, the city will be able to use the university’s renovated facilities for community sports groups and organizations as well as sports tourism. These updates are part of a 10-year, multi-phase project to update and revitalize the WLU University Stadium.
