I don't know exactly where to post this, but it has just been announced that the future Soccer and Track and Field stadium in Moncton NB will be getting an extra monetary boost of 1.5 million dollars, bringing some interesting things to the stadium. This infrastructure is being built for the 2010 Jr. Track and Field World Championships.

There will be:

- 8 500 permanent seats in the stadium (up from the initially planned 5 000).

- The possibility to add 9 500 seats, bringing the total capacity to 18 000 (up from the initially planned 10 000).

- Ddditional access roads, parking, entrances and exits, showers, dressing rooms, sound systems and electrical feeds for the stadium, to be built on the Université de Moncton campus.

Now, this is one hell of a big project. I can't imagine it simply being built for the games and the odd time that there is an event capable of drawing 8 500 people. Could a soccer team be in the works for the future in Moncton? I'm not very knowledgeable in the different leagues, but could something like the USL div. 2 work out?
