Canada Games Stadium is a multi-purpose, fully lit stadium in Saint John, New Brunswick.

It was built on the campus of UNB Saint John for the 1985 Canada Summer Games and has a seating capacity of 5,000 spectators.

Canada Games Stadium features a 400m synthetic rubberized track surface, as well as separate areas for long jump/triple jump, high jump, pole vault, discus, hammer, shot put, and javelin. Inside the track is a synthetic turf soccer/football field.

In 2009 the stadium received $3.6 million in upgrades, including resurfacing the track, placing synthetic turf on the infield, the creation of an area for throwing events, grand stand renovations, infield lighting installation, a scoreboard, security lighting and perimeter fencing, and a new storage area.[1]

Besides hosting university and minor sports, the Canada Games Stadium has hosted national track & field events; international soccer matches (including matches during the 1987 FIFA U-16 World Championship), and two CFL pre-season football games (with temporary seating added) in 1986 and 1987. In 2012 the stadium hosted the NCCWMA & CMA Masters Track & Field Championships.[2]

It has been announced that UNB Saint John will host the 2013 CCAA Men's National Soccer Championships.[3]
