State-of-the-Art Sports Complex Brings World Class Events to Seminole County
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – Competitive sports have called Seminole County home for almost a century, from the early spring training games of the New York Giants and Boston Braves to the training grounds for Major League Soccer’s local franchise Orlando City. In a game changing move for Central Florida, Seminole County opened a 102-acre, sports complex in May 2016 that is already contracted to become the home of hundreds of top youth and amateur events over the next several years.
The premiere, tournament-quality sports complex provides exceptional multi-purpose fields, designated baseball and softball fields, a central pavilion and dedicated amenities for both players and spectators. The complex also features multiple artificial turf fields, which can be used for lacrosse events and several other types of sport events requiring multi-purpose fields.
According to Tricia Setzer Chief Administrator, Seminole County Office of Economic Development, Community Relations and Tourism, “This is a game changer. The presence of a tournament-quality sports complex in Seminole County is attracting not only sports tournaments but also showcase training academies. The Boombah Sports Complex is also already bringing in a large number of visitors to the area, resulting in economic benefits to Seminole County’s hotels, businesses and attractions.”
“This facility is elevating Seminole County into the premier league of sporting destinations in Florida. We already have year-round capabilities, value prices for teams and leagues and a great support structure. Now Seminole County is fast becoming a sports powerhouse,” said John Bisignano, President of the Central Florida Sports Commission.
In addition to its traditional baseball and tennis roots, Seminole County recently became a home to many NCAA, FHSAA and other state and international sporting events - including annual Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) tournaments that have brought tens of thousands of visitors to the County - and a training center for countless athletes ranging from high school to Olympic status. The complex continues Seminole County’s legacy of providing diverse sports venues and hosting some of the world’s best athletes.
