Planning and design of the Tim Horton's Field is part of the community and contains areas for both the stadium and the community. This includes landscaped plazas, vistas and opportunities for the community that will overlap and intertwine.
The design for the new Tim Horton's Stadium contains 22,500 seats, all with excellent views to the field of play. The field of play is appropriately sized for both CFL football and professional soccer. We have maintained a 1.525 meter high headwall aeround the gield; this elevated position for the seating brings the lowest rows of fans above the players to assure good sight lines to the field. It is also low enough for the fans to be right in the action, a traditional relationship at Ivor Wynne Stadium that we were aware of and worked to maintain. The views are enhanced by concentrating the seats between the goal lines and by maintaining excellent C-values for all the seating tiers.
The concourses are generally wide and allow for spectators to see the field while using them. The design provides seating on three sides of the field. First, a robust west side stand complete with professional change rooms, administration space, community space, a club lounge, suites and group sales suites and a media level; an efficient and well-organized east side stand with retail store and ticketing, green rooms and storage and two seating tiers; finally we provide end zone hosting terraces at the north end zone for a unique fan experience and hospitality.
