Fields and stadiums: Ulster Stadium, Toronto

In January 1926 Ulster United was taken over by the Ulster Stadium Limited, being a pioneer of soccer football under a stock ownership proposition. The Ulster Stadium covered grand stand had a seating capacity for 6,200 persons. In addition, they bought 1,800 seats from Scarboro Beach Park and had standing capacity for 2,800 fans. This gave them an approximate total capacity of 10,800. On Saturday May 29 a picked Toronto XI was defeated by the touring English Football Association team in front of 8,000 spectators at the stadium.
