The Gordie Howe Bowl was a community funded project. The initial 3 phase plan was focused on upgrades to Saskatoon Minor Football Field including adding a CFL regulation artificial turf, lighting, score clock and sound system. Phase 2 included a 24,000sf clubhouse including four football dressing rooms, four softball dressing rooms, referees and officials rooms, concessions, public washrooms, equipment storage, meeting rooms, offices and an event space with capacity for 300 people. Phase 3 finished off the entrance plaza and provided a new ticket booth for upcoming venues. The project was a large accomplishment for all beneficiaries of the newly upgraded sports complex.
