Disney have announced some new details on the new sports venue that is being built at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World.
This new indoor sports venue, which can be found adjacent to the Jostens Center, will feature a flexible design that can morph from one large competition space capable of seating more than 8,000 fans to as many as four separate competition areas. It will be so flexible that it can be configured to host a variety of other sports, such as basketball and volleyball, as well as concerts.
This venue will be the largest venue in America that is specifically designed with cheerleading and dance competitions in mind, offering special warm up and practice areas as well as spaces for judges and officials.
The facility, expected to be complete within the next 18 months, will perfectly complement the growing number of prestigious cheerleading and dance events at Disney. Currently, the sports complex plays host to nine cheerleading and dance competitions, including six elite Varsity-produced events such as the USASF Cheerleading and Dance Worlds held each spring.
With the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex already a major player in the cheerleading and dance world, this new venue will allow Disney to offer more events and become a major location for upcoming events and trips for cheerleading and dance teams.
