The Soccerplexe Catalogna is a sports complex for soccer situated in the city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was the first sports centre in Greater Montreal equipped with both an indoor and an outdoor soccer pitch with synthetic turf. The latter can also be divided into 3 smaller courts to pit 7 against 7 (instead of 11 against 11). Additionally, the Soccerplexe was the first in Quebec to upgrade to FieldTurf. The Centre Sportif Bois-de-Boulogne is the only other location in the area with this type of floor covering.

The Lac Saint-Louis Regional Soccer Association’s offices[1] are at the Soccerplexe, and they hold a winter camp there for players at the intermediate and elite levels. Quebec’s teams also use it to host their evaluation camps and exhibition matches. The Soccerplexe is also recognized as a national centre of high performance for athletes identified by Soccer Canada. Soccer matches, and various regional, provincial, and national tournaments are held there as well. The Soccerplexe is also available to football and soccer teams playing at various levels for evaluation or training camps. It is the permanent training site for the Montreal Impact and occasionally for the Montreal Alouettes.

The Soccerplexe is also a true multidisciplinary sports centre. It contains a gym and can accommodate soccer, football, volleyball, rugby and ultimate Frisbee. The centre is staffed with elite athletes and highly qualified coaches. Several other services are also available to athletes such as a sports therapy clinic, physiotherapy, sports camps for youngsters, a recreational senior soccer league in the summertime.

The center was built by Catalogna Group.[2]
