Brian:

In answer to your question as to why HostCo won't just use BMO Field for all of the Pan Am soccer games, HostCo CEO Ian Troop has said that the recent installation of a grass field at BMO Field would result in too much wear and tear on its natural playing surface. He said that HostCo is working on "building the soccer component" and that Hamilton would therefore host up to 30 Pan Am soccer games.

If not for the natural turf at BMO Field, Maple Leaf Sports Enterprises would have undoubtedly tried to hoard as many Pan Am soccer games as possible for their own venue.
