Langford, British Columbia - Westhills Stadium in Langford, British Columbia is a prominent player in the new Canadian Premier League, the professional soccer league founded in Canada just two years ago. Home to Pacific FC, games are already underway as the club kicks off its inaugural season.
Like most large-scale venues, Westhills wanted to make the most of the stadium’s use while the team was away. Owned by the City of Langford, it recently underwent extensive renovations that increased the capacity from 1,600 permanent seats to the current 6,000, along with 10 boxes and numerous amenities. Increasing opportunities to host special events meant sourcing high-quality temporary covering to protect the synthetic turf field.
The best choice for event flooring turned out to be MasterShield™ Vinyl 27, a heavy-duty artificial turf cover designed for extraordinary strength and easy maintenance. The stadium ordered 22 sections of the vinyl concert tarp, each measuring 33 by 115 feet. Each section is overlapped and seamed to the next section with a specially formulated tape that creates a safe surface. Fire retardant, waterproof, and rot- and mildew-resistant, the artificial turf covering can be folded, rolled onto a corrugated PVC pipe, and easily stored for the next event.
One of the challenges for Covermaster® was turning the order around for a highly-anticipated event at a nearby Langford location. In just a few weeks, the custom outdoor event covering made its debut at Bear Mountain Resort for a special boxing championship partnered by the city and set up under a bubble on the resort’s tennis courts.
Customization makes MasterShield™ Vinyl one of the leading choices in portable event covering. By investing in the durable concert tarps, Westhills Stadium will be easily transformed into a multi-use venue for concerts, trade shows, and other special gatherings.
