PHOTOS – ESPN Wide World of Sports multi-use arena construction update (April 2017)
If you’ve been to ESPN Wide World of Sports within the past year or so, it’s hard to miss the new multi-use arena being constructed right next to the parking lot. With the ability to seat over 8,000 guests, plus performance and warm-up space, the new multi-use sports and entertainment venue will also have the ability to host six regulation basketball courts, six regulation volleyball courts or concert configurations. There will be concessions throughout the building, and an additional box office and entry to the complex.
Most of the work being done now appears to be to the exterior wall and roofing.
Disney has stated that they’re aiming for a mid-2017 opening date.
