At a Regina City council meeting held October 2021, LSSE and the Red Sox presented a vision and plan for a new baseball stadium in Regina. At that time, LSSE and the Red Sox offered to financially cost-share a feasibility study together with the city. City administration asked council to authorize spending up to a maximum of $100,000 dollars for the cities proportionate cost of a feasibility study. The Red Sox and LSSE brought 14 delegations to the meeting. All spoke in favour of proceeding, with no delegations in attendance opposing the study. Nonetheless, the motion was defeated 8-3, with councillors Shaw, Findura, and Bresciani voting in favor of the feasibility study. At the meeting a subsequent motion was put forward to consider a Needs Assessment Study (NAS) regarding a baseball stadium that is now underway. The NAS is being undertaken by the City of Regina, Real Exhibition Association Limited and LSSE/Regina Red Sox. The cost of the study is being shared equally among the parties. It is anticipated that the results of the NAS will be presented to city council June 2022, which we hope will lead to proceeding with a feasibility study.
Our Stadium Projects
Marquis Downs at Prairieland Park – Soccer
As you might expect, a pro soccer club needs a soccer stadium. At LSSE, our first job is to get that done. We are excited to have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Prairieland Park to explore the refurbishment and development of Marquis Downs to a soccer stadium – ready for Saskatoon’s CPL pro soccer club and much more. Visit our Stadium Project page for updates and learn more. We will post updates as they unfold.
In the meantime, we invite you to share our vision and express your support.
Ballpark Stadium at The Railyards on Dewdney
The Regina Red Sox are a summer league collegiate team based in Regina, Saskatchewan with roots stemming back to the 1940’s. The club operates as a franchise member of the Western Canadian Baseball League playing a 56-game schedule during the spring and summer with 28 home games plus preseason and playoffs held at the ball diamond at Currie Field. Currie Field, a 60 year old venue is no longer suitable for the continued success of the Red Sox. And as such, the Red Sox and LSSE have entered into an MOU for the development of a ballpark stadium at the rail yards on Dewdney Ave.
