WSF SOCCER SOUTH
211 Chancellor Matheson Road, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
WSF Soccer South opened in 2008 and is located on the campus of the University of Manitoba. This 105,000sq-ft facility is one of the largest clear-span buildings in North American and is almost five stories high from field to ceiling at its highest point.
The facility features a simulated grass turf field (210' x 328') that provides the closest playing experience to real grass while also decreasing turf burn and injuries. Teams can play on the full field or curtains can be electronically lowered to divide the field in quarter or half field formations. Teams have their own bench areas and can also use the electronic clocks to officially keep score of their game.
At field level, players have access to 12 large dressing rooms each with team lockers to secure your belongings. There are two dedicated rooms for referees with showers and individual lockers. A first aid room and ice are available for minor injuries.

An upper concourse area gives spectators a bird’s eye view of the playing surface and an ideal way to cheer on their team. To add to the amenities for players and fans is a canteen and Kicker’s Lounge, a fully licensed restaurant area. A large meeting room is also available to add to your rental options.
The Information Booth, sponsored by Sirius Benefit Plans, is located just inside the main entrance of the complex. A Winnipeg Soccer Federation staff member will be at the booth when the facility is in use. Here, you can pick up and return your locker key, pay for your field rental or simply stop by to ask for general information. Lost and found inquiries can also be made here or you can call the main office during business hours at 204-953-4747. Please note that all lost and found items will be held for 30 days only.

Parking is free after 4:30pm on Monday-Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Please refer to the parking information posted at the meters for further details.
