Keep in mind - with some costs overuns MLSE has reportedly paid close to $120 million on the renovations over the last two years. And any money the city put in they will recoup because of how their lease agreement works with MLSE through 2037.
Money the city recoups largely because of revenue generated at the large number of soccer games scheduled to be played there each year over the length of the lease. (20+ games each year). For MLSE outdoor hockey games were always part of the equation of the money they were investing in this project.
This renovation would have not happened without TFC. CFL fans might want to keep that in mind before expressing absurd wishes that TFC's best players get hurt as a result of damage caused to the turf by a CFL game. :roll:
