From the Guelph Mercury:
The University of Guelph’s newest sports facility is up and running.
The Gryphon Field House replaces the old Gryphon Dome, which had to be torn down due to structural issues.
Located on what used to be a soccer field beside where the old dome was in the centre of campus, the Gryphon Field House is a “pre-engineered” steel building that will house an indoor track as well as facilities for track and field events.
The infield is made of artificial turf suitable for soccer, rugby, football, lacrosse, baseball and ultimate Frisbee, the U of G said in a press release.
The structure is 185 feet by 300 feet and cost $9 million to build.
The new field house is currently being used for summer camp programs and for varsity and intramural training.

I love the possible use the football program can make of this facility in the off-season and in bad weather situations. It makes Guelph unique, as UofT is the only other OUA program with a similiar indoor capability.
