Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz says the city will pledge $2 million toward a soccer facility at the University of Winnipeg if he is re-elected later this month. The university is designing a new $20-million recreation centre that will include an indoor soccer field, a sport-training facility, and possibly a parkade.
