Tomorrow’s Legends, a non-profit organization based in Sydney, will convert a former hockey arena to a solar-powered, multisport facility after an investment of over $2.1 million from the federal government.

Announced by Parliamentary Secretary Jaime Battiste and Tomorrow’s Legends Founder Bill Kachafanas, this project will provide a state-of-the-art, indoor sports facility for community members and athletes in Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM).

The former Centennial Arena will be retrofitted with rooftop solar panels and a new exterior, creating a sustainable, energy-efficient, net-zero carbon facility. These improvements are expected to reduce the facility’s fuel consumption by an estimated 104% and greenhouse gas emissions by 620 tonnes. The upgraded facility will include indoor playing surfaces for basketball, volleyball, pickleball and other indoor activities, as well as a community meeting space, and cultural and hall of fame exhibits.
