CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Athletics Stadium

CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Athletics Stadium

The CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletics Stadium will host the perfect blend of sport competition and celebration during the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. The venue will not only host the track and field events — a spectator favourite — during both the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games but will also be home to the memorable Parapan Am Opening Ceremony.

The stadium is building on the world-class athletics infrastructure already present at York University, including the Toronto Track & Field Centre, which will serve as an athlete training and warm-up facility during the Games.

The fully accessible CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Athletics Stadium is designed for certification by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) as a Class 1 track suitable for hosting Olympic and other top-tier competitions.

It will have a 400-metre track and an infield that supports throwing and jumping disciplines, as well as a scoreboard, professional broadcast capabilities, athlete change rooms, equipment storage and classroom space.

Spectators in the grandstand will have an unobstructed view of the field of play, as well as the natural landscape of the campus’s protected Boyer Woodlot.

On August 7, the best para-athletes from the Americas will fill the venue for the Parapan Am Opening Ceremony. The ceremony will create lifetime memories for athletes, coaches, officials and fans with the Parade of Nations and the lighting of the cauldron, which will officially open the Games.

After this intimate ceremony under the stars, the stadium will once again transform to host the majority of the athletics competitions for the Parapan Am Games.
