Allan A. Lamport Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium on King Street West in the Liberty Village neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The 9,600 seating capacity stadium is primarily used for soccer, with the playing surface dually marked for both soccer and field hockey. The stadium was named for long-time Toronto politician Allan Lamport, who was associated with sporting activities in the city.
Since construction, the playing surface has been artificial turf. The artificial turf was most recently replaced in 2008 by Dol Turf.
During the winter-time, the field is covered by a dome. The dome was transferred from BMO Field in 2009 when BMO Field was converted to natural grass. The indoor field measures 68 metres by 105 metres, allowing a full eleven-a-side game.
Both SC Toronto and Major League Soccer team Toronto FC's Academy side played their Canadian Soccer League home games at Lamport Stadium. The OUA's Ryerson Rams soccer teams also call the stadium home.
It was announced on May 21, 2012, that Lamport Stadium will be the new home of the Canada national rugby league team, the Wolverines. Their first game of 2013, the Colonial Cup opener against the United States national rugby league team saw a crowd of nearly 8,000 turn out to witness a thrilling comeback from the Wolverines.
Besides sporting events, the stadium also hosts a major Caribana event each summer: the crowning ceremony for the King and Queen of Caribana.
