TransCanada Donates $60,000 for Providence Soccer Facility Upgrade


There was a buzz of excitement amongst Providence Pilots athletes today as they gathered in the gymnasium to hear the announcement of a $60,000 upgrade to their soccer facilities. Thanks to the donation from TransCanada Corporation, the soccer facilities in Otterburne will be equipped with a new parking lot, sound system, video tower, and an electronic scoreboard.

The upgrades, which wouldn’t be possible without the donation, will not only impact the multi-time MCAC champion Providence Pilots, but also community teams from Otterburne and Grunthal who share the facility with the varsity teams throughout the year.

For Athletic Director Scott Masterson, the upgrades are yet another stamp of legitimacy to a program that has proven for years now to be one of the finest in the Manitoba soccer community.

“This is a big boost not just for the reputation of our varsity teams, but also for the soccer community here as well” says Masterson. “Our athletes know that we have an exceptional soccer program here with the success we’ve had over the years, but now other teams and programs that come out to play will get a better glimpse of a soccer community that is really thriving in Otterburne.”

The wheels are already in motion with these upgrades, as some projects are either well on their way to be completed, or are already finished. Providence hopes to have most, if not all of these upgrades completed before they host the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference Final Fours next weekend on October 25 and 26.
