Notable Events & Accomplishments

The Hangar Sport and Events Centre Highlight Listing Image

"North Toronto Soccer Club is a major renter of field space at the Hangar Sport and Events Centre at Downsview Park, in the Hangar and Dome and on outdoor fields. The experience of our administrative staff and operations staff and myself working with the Hangar team has been excellent. Bookings for space are confirmed well in advance of each season so that scheduling can be finalized. When special events run by other organizations are booked, alternate space and/or times have been provided to our organization. The staff have demonstrated a solid understanding of our business, have always been available on a prompt basis to deal with our issues, and continually provide a high level of customer service. North Toronto Soccer Club looks forward to continuing our relationship with the Hangar Sport and Events Centre for many more years." - Doug Blair, General Manager, North Toronto Soccer Club

"Working with Spectra has been a great experience. They act as a partner on site while still keeping in mind the responsibilities of the venue. We look forward to working with Spectra on Veld for years to come." - Pete Lawlor, Producer, Project Manager, Level Productions Inc.
