Still miss soccer after the World Cup is over? You can watch Vancouver’s own Lions and Wave teams in action at the recently completed Empire Field Stadium. What is interesting about this stadium is that it is made with more than 22,000 recycled tires!
Halfway across the globe from the World Cup in South Africa, a soccer story in Vancouver is making headlines for reasons other than officiating. Vancouver’s Empire Field Stadium has installed a sports field that used 346,000 pounds of crumb rubber made from tires, courtesy of Liberty Tire Recycling.
The field is now the largest installation of crumb rubber in all of British Columbia, and offers other benefits besides the reuse of 22,450 scrap tires.
