About Living Sky Sports and Entertainment
Living Sky Sports and Entertainment Inc. (LSSE) is a Saskatchewan based company specifically incorporated for the purpose of growing the sports market in the Province of Saskatchewan. Most recently, LSSE has entered into an agreement with Canadian Soccer Business (CSB) and acquired the exclusive rights for the development and launch of a Canadian Premier League (CPL) team and signed a Memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Regina Red Sox Baseball Club, a member of the Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL), to assist with the development of a ball park stadium located at the rail yards on Dewdney Avenue in Regina.
The first step in the process towards LSSE’s launch of a CPL expansion team is to develop a soccer-ready stadium suitable to CSB’s league wide standards. Initial capacity for a stadium will be approximately 5000 seats with room for further expansion. LSSE’s plans include funding any pre-development costs of a stadium, as well as a meaningful portion of the capital cost of a stadium renovation, refurbishment or construction.
The founder of LSSE is Alan Simpson a life-long resident of Saskatchewan. “We are excited about being part of CPL’s expansion plans for Saskatchewan and the opportunity to bring CPL and pro soccer to the province,” said Simpson. “By acquiring the rights to a CPL expansion club, we can immediately begin work on our first task, which is the development and financing of a soccer-ready stadium, suitable to CPL league wide standards, but more importantly, begin supporting the dream many Canadian kids have of playing pro soccer in their own country.”
Simpson added, “While some may question the wisdom of launching this project during COVID 19, we are optimists and believe we will overcome COVID, and we will get back to stadium sports as an integral part of our lives. A Wayne Gretzky quote best sums up our view saying, ‘I skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been.’ At LSSE we think stadium sports will be back and we need to work now to be there when it arrives.”
