A local businessman is betting on an international sport that is becoming increasingly popular in Saskatoon. Tanweer Ahmed has partnered with Wolff Companies to build a new cricket complex in Waller County called “The” Prairie View Cricket Complex.
The complex is at the intersection of 290 and Liendo Parkway. It originally started with Wolff Companies, who founded the nearly 68 acre Liendo Park. Ahmed then added 16 acres himself.
Ahmed has lived in Saskatoon since 2007 and loves cricket. He learned it in Pakistan, where he is from, and currently plays for GACCI in the Saskatoon Cricket League.
It will be a “one of a kind” complex, says Ahmed.
“This is one of our most exciting and gratifying transactions in more than 50 years of business,” said David Wolff, chairman and president of Wolff Companies, in a statement. Wolff added that this deal will add to the growth of Saskatoon and its diversity.
One of the main factors in this deal for Ahmed was convenience. He says this new location will be the easiest for everyone to access and will ultimately help their league grow from 28 teams to 50.
