Mississauga Scores a Second Boxed Soccer Pitch for the Downtown Core

The City of Mississauga is constructing a second outdoor boxed soccer pitch in the city’s downtown core — the second pitch of its kind in Canada. The new pitch will be located at Mississauga Valley Park  and will provide outdoor recreational opportunities to residents while promoting and encouraging informal soccer play.
