Turf installation begins at Fountain Street soccer complex

The installation of turf has started at Cambridge's new soccer complex

Cambridge may not be at the top of the list for World Cup hosting rights, but the city will soon see a brand new soccer complex come to fruition.

The Fountain Street soccer complex has taken another step toward completion with the synthetic turf playing surface installation having started. It represents an important step in the construction of the city’s newest sports facility.

According to the report on capital projects that will head to city council next week, construction will continue until the winter weather hits and it’s no longer feasible to continue for the year.

Work will then pick back up in the spring time and if all goes as planned, the facility will be open in the fall of 2023.

Demand to play at the new fields will certainly be high but players can still expect practices and games to be scheduled at other facilities in the city.

Shane Taylor, project lead of recreation services for the city of Cambridge told CambridgeToday earlier this fall that there are no plans to decommission any of the other soccer fields.

The soccer complex is part of over $130 million being invested into recreation infrastructure in the next five years.

The city is reminding residents that the fields are still active construction sites.
