ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex
Spread over 200 acres, ESPN's Wide World of Sports™ Complex has quickly become one of the world's top sports destinations - including the the annual Pop Warner Super Bowl and National Cheer & Dance Championships.
Solely devoted to the spirit of athletic competition, the vast sports landscape includes: a 5,500-seat field house with room for six full-size basketball courts, a 7,500-seat Baseball Stadium, an 11-court tennis complex with a centre court stadium, a softball quadraplex, baseball quadraplex, a pair of youth baseball fields, four multi-sport fields (all with international soccer dimensions), and a modern, nine-lane 400-meter track and field stadium.
The complex also boasts the only permanent version of the NFL Experience and the Official All Star Cafe sports-themed restaurant.
These facilities were built for sports with all of the modern amenities today's technology can offer. Every single athletic surface at ESPN Wide World of Sports™ Complex is of the finest quality, giving athletes the ability to perform at the highest level. All-grass playing surfaces at the complex feature fast, elegant and natural Tifway 419 Bermuda Turf, commonly seen in pro stadiums. The drainage systems are engineered to deal with Florida's occasional cloudbursts, dispersing rain rapidly so that delays are kept to a minimum and the action is virtually non-stop.
The multi-sport fields that will again play host to the Pop Warner Super Bowl have also welcomed many of the top professional players who have participated in the NFL Quarterback Challenge, the NFL Air-It-Out and the Cincinnati Bengals Mini-Camp. Top high school football players have also participated in the Kaylee Scholarship Association Game of the Week at the Orlando, Florida venue, ESPN Wide World of Sports™.
THE HP FIELD HOUSE:
With over 30,000 square feet of competition space on the bottom floor alone, this state-of-the-art facility is one of the most unique sport venues that has been seen in decades. The Milk House features unprecedented flexibility, new age playing surfaces, custom athlete training areas, and new "Florida Picturesque" construction. Wrestling, martial arts, basketball, volleyball, and inline hockey are just a few of the sports that take place in The Milk House.
Inside, fans are surrounded by beautiful ballroom-style finished hallways and stairwells that aredecorated with colored tiles and luxury fixtures. The brightly painted ceiling with sprawling trusses and special up-lighting give the cozy arena an open, universal feel. Of the 5,000 seats, the highest row in The Milk House is only 35 feet off the ground, providing up-close viewing of the action!
Not a detail has been overlooked to ensure that all athletes have a five-star experience in The Milk House. This formidable facility allows for athletes to attend a health session in one of the four classrooms, work out in the 3,000-square-foot strength-and-conditioning room with Hammer Strength® and York equipment, or utilize one of the spacious custom Akira wood professional lockers that have safety features and a lower storage area.
