Wiregrass Ranch Sports Complex Groundbreaking
Premiere sports tourism and hotel complex coming to Wesley Chapel
Pasco County and RADDSports will break ground on the highly-anticipated Wiregrass Ranch Sports Complex Thursday, June 7, 2018, at 10 a.m. in Wesley Chapel.
The state-of-the-art, multipurpose facility and accompanying hotel add to the area’s already-impressive offerings and Pasco County’s positioning as a premiere sports tourism destination.
“The Wiregrass Ranch Sports Complex is an exciting, new venture and partnership,” said Tourism Director Adam Thomas. “Athletes and their families will enjoy a world-class facility and experience that extends beyond the courts – at our newest hotels, premium shopping and dining destinations.”

The new 44 million-dollar public-private partnership will include a multipurpose gymnasium, public park, amphitheater and event lawn. The more than 98,000 square foot sports center features eight bio-cushioned hardwood regulation courts that can be used for basketball, volleyball, mixed martial arts, gymnastics, wrestling, soccer, futsal, cheerleading, dance and more.
