Construction on WSFS Bank Sportsplex in Pennsylvania

Philadelphia Union has unveiled plans for its $55 million sports complex dubbed WSFS Bank Sportsplex on Chester’s Waterfront in Pennsylvania. This is a massive expansion of the soccer team’s home at Subaru Park, which adds a new sports and recreation complex. The facility is expected to accommodate not only the organisation’s professional and academic teams, but also the local youth groups.

Philadelphia Union has provided a video, which gives a virtual tour of the project’s renderings. The WSFS Bank Sportsplex will span across a 32-acre lot located between Subaru Park and the Union Power Plant office building. The sports complex will feature both indoor facilities and outdoor fields. Additionally, the development plans will also incorporate youth soccer development and education programmes for Philadelphia Union Academy and YSC Academy.

Development plans for the WSFS Bank Sportsplex

The developers expect to break ground on the WSFS Bank Sportsplex this winter and complete the outdoor fields by August 2023. However, the indoor facilities have a delivery date set for June 2024. Upon completion, the new Sportsplex will provide a 100,000-square-foot indoor facility, which will be open to the community. It also features a 70,000-square-foot support building to accommodate the youth soccer development programs.

The indoor facilities at the WSFS Bank Sportsplex will feature a 125-by-75-yard turf field. This will also involve the addition of several courts which can be configured for different-sized fields. What’s more, a 20,000-square-foot performance center will be built which will include several amenities for athletes. Several such amenities include a weight room and sprint track, locker rooms and a cafe open to athletes and guests

However, the outdoor facilities for the WSFS Bank Sportsplex will consist of seven well-lit outdoor fields. These fields will consist of three turf and four grass fields. One grass field will be a championship field, with spectator seating. Meanwhile there will also be two other full-sized fields, along with a youth-size grass field.

The developer expects the WSFS Bank Sportsplex to create a $90 million economic impact over the next decade. Especially since the Chester Waterfront rejoin receives close to 500,000 visitors annually. Furthermore, the facility offers hundreds of hours in court and field time for both community use and health and wellness programs.
