As the sports business continues to grow, ESPN Wide World of Sports at the Walt Disney World Resort is preparing to break ground on a new, state-of-the-art cheerleading and dance team competition venue. The ESPN Wide World of Sports worked alongside Varsity Spirit to create a space specifically designed for cheerleading and dance competitions. This location will provide competition space, warm up and practice areas, along with areas for judges and officials.
With its flexible design, this new venue will be capable of multi-sport and entertainment events as well. It will have the ability to host six regulation basketball courts, six regulation volleyball courts, concerts, and seat more than 8,000 Guests. There will be concessions throughout the building, and an additional box office and entry to the Complex.
Construction on the state-of-the-art venue is expected to be complete by mid-2017.
