Whitehorse Indoor Soccer Centre

Success! Two indoor courts will be full of soccer action in the fall of 2005. From now on, please follow developments at the special Whitehorse Multiplex Phase Two Project Information Web Site.

Although this site has achieved its purpose, it will stay open indefinitely. It has received overwhelming poitive response from the international community. It has proven it's usefulness to others and should be maintained. There are also some minor local issues, particularly around proposed costs for soccer in the new facility, which may require documentation.

We will continue to post here information of all kinds relating to indoor centre development. But as our need for this site diminishes, we may be less prompt at posting updates and new material. If you have any questions which are not answered by this site, or any information we might add, please email Doug Hitch, (hitch at polarcom dot com)
