According to Veneziale, even with a shortened season, plans for a converted industrial building on Maureen Street included 120 hours a week of indoor soccer.

He also said the Thunder Bay women's league is "looking at doing some kind of small game system."

In the wake of a challenge to the Ontario Municipal Board, and the possible need for a costly environmental study at the waterfront site, Soccer Northwest announced on the weekend that regular men's and women's indoor soccer league play would be cancelled.

Michael Veneziale, in an interview on Tuesday, said "This is just showing what we've been saying all along now. I think city council and administration is starting to realize how big soccer is in Thunder Bay."

Zanette did not reply to a request for comment.
