Soccer at West Island facility could resume Sunday after roof tear
Inflatable soccer dome in Baie-D'Urfé collapsed earlier this week after vinyl roof tore
An inflatable soccer dome on Montreal's West Island which collapsed earlier this week is not expected to reopen before the weekend.
No one was inside Complexe Dôme Multi-Sport Volkswagen des Sources at the time of the collapse.
The dome had been closed since Dec. 31, when two large tears appeared in the vinyl roof. The tears caused the large dome to deflate and collapse in on itself.
Hundreds of soccer players who practice or play on the full-size indoor soccer pitch have had their games cancelled.
PlayClub, one of the groups that uses the dome, posted on its Facebook page that activities will be cancelled all week.
"The dome is still down at this point and we are proactively cancelling our Co-Ed Corporate Strike league this Thursday, Jan. 7. We hope to resume regular activity this coming Sunday," read PlayClub's post.
