Percy Perry Stadium
Percy Perry Stadium is a multi-purpose, fully lit stadium in Coquitlam, British Columbia. It was built for the 1991 B.C. Summer Games, as part of the district's 100th anniversary, and has featured events with crowds of over 4,000 spectators. Prior to 2006, the stadium had been named "Town Centre Stadium", but was renamed to "Percy Perry Stadium" in honour of long-standing track and field coach Percy Perry who died in 2005.
Percy Perry Stadium features a 400m polyflex synthetic rubberized track surface, as well as separate areas for long jump/triple jump, high jump, pole vault, discus, hammer, shot put, and javelin.
Beginning in the spring of 2007, the city of Coquitlam undertook a $10 million expansion to the facilities in and around Percy Perry Stadium, in order to expand the number of events and tournaments that could be held at the facility throughout the year. The natural grass inside the track was replaced with FieldTurf, two new fully lit FieldTurf fields were constructed north of the stadium, and the Astroturf at Cunnings Field to the west has also been replaced with FieldTurf.
Percy Perry Stadium is home to the Pacific Coast Soccer League's Khalsa Sporting Club, the Coquitlam Cheetahs track and field club, and previously served as the home of the CMFSC Xtreme, Whitecaps FC Reserves, and the defunct Tri-City Bulldogs of the Canadian Junior Football League.
The facility has been host to the B.C. Summer Games, the yearly BC Highland Games, the 1993 Canadian Track and Field Championships. International events include hosting to a sellout crowd of 4,265 when Canada upset Scotland 3-1 in a warmup to the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and another sellout crowd watched the 2008 ILF Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships.
