MLSE unveils makeover plans for BMO Field
The proposed changes include adding 8,000 seats and covering all four sections

Attending TFC games at BMO Field could mean dealing with a lot more people in the not-so-distant future.

MLSE's expansion plans would see the field seat 30,000 people, have it covered on all four sides, and add another upper deck. Currently, BMO Field accomodates 22,000 fans.

The plan was presented at a public meeting Wednesday night.

Toronto FC may have to play elsewhere while construction takes place, but that won't begin until after the 2014 MLS season, if the expansion is given the green light. Also, the changes would happen over several seasons.

The Toronto Argonauts are also looking for a new home since a new grass field will be installed at Rogers Centre after 2017.

The plans go before the Exhibition Place board of directors on Friday morning and city council's executive committee in mid March. If approved by full council, construction could begin this fall.

    Does anyone know if it will affect the CNE grounds or CNE buidings or will they expand strictly within BMO including the upper deck?
