West Island soccer dome reopens after collapse
Indoor soccer pitch was closed for nearly a week due to tears
A soccer dome in Baie-D'Urfé is back open, 11 days after it tore while being deflated for snow-clearing after Dec. 29's record snowfall.
The vinyl roof of the Complexe Dôme Multi-Sport Volkswagen des Sources tore in two places during that maintenance work, and the inflatable building couldn't be reopened until those tears were repaired.
That's left hundreds of West Island soccer players unable to play or practise at the facility since Dec. 31.
"We're happy to announce that the issues with the Baie-D'Urfé dome have been resolved, and the facility is re-opening today," wrote the dome's administration on its website.
Games will resume this week.
