Langford has undergone a huge transformation over the last 20 years, thanks in part to a visionary mayor from a multi generational local family (Stewart Young). The rejuvenation began with a simple premise: create recreational spaces, and the people will come. It worked. The West Shore community grows at an average of 3500 per year, and the fields and arenas are busy from dawn to dusk.
One of those amenities is West Hills Stadium. It too is undergoing a major transformation in order to host a CPL club. The stadium will increase in capacity from 1500 to 7500 seats, with steep intimate seating and all the extra perks that are required for a professional set up. Initially, the Langford Parkway side will become a VIP zone with modular loge and corporate suites, while the two ends will be terraced. The current main stand will also undergo a major renovation. Eventually, the stadium will transition from temporary modular, to a more permanent design.
