The Pan Am Field Hockey Centre is a proposed field hockey facility to be built in Toronto for the 2015 Pan American Games. It is scheduled to be completed in 2014, one year before the games start.[1] The stadium is planned for 2,000 seats, all of which will consist of temporary seating for the games,[2] and will be built on the existing Back Campus grass rugby pitch between University College and Hoskins Avenue on the St. George Campus of University of Toronto.

It is scheduled to cost $9.5 million, which includes $6.25 million to build and finance the project. "The remainder is comprised of [sic] capital expenditures for equipment, transaction fees, project management and other ancillary costs". Construction is expected to begin in July 2013.[2]

The facility will host the 2015 Parapan American Games and will be known as the Parapan Am Soccer Centre during that time.[2]

The facility will consist of two Global Class 1 fields. One will be used for practices and warm-ups while the other will be used for competition.[2]
