Toronto FC’s quest for a natural grass training facility was ramped up Friday.

The club, particularly its head coach Preki, has long pined for a natural training surface that would cut down on wear and tear amongst the players.

The club announced that it is actively seeking a partner to build “one of the largest and most ambitious training facility projects in North America.”

TFC would ideally like to see “two or more state-of-the-art grass fields with 365 days availability with the installation of a winter bubble.”

The team likely is looking for a handout from the municipal, provincial or federal governments, since it plans to provide “thousands of hours of community usage.”
