The Philadelphia Union announced big plans for the WSFS Bank Sportsplex this week. According to the press release, this world-class, 365-day-a-year, 170,000 sq. ft, 32-acre sports and recreation complex, is in partnership with WSFS Bank. This is good news for Chester County. The $55-million-dollar project marks a significant step in the revitalization of the Chester Waterfront and will create jobs. It is also expected to bring over 500,000 new visitors to the region.
WSFS Bank joins the project as naming rights partner as a part of their multi-year agreement announced in August. As a part of the naming rights entitlement, the project will be named WSFS Bank Sportsplex and WSFS Bank will donate 365 hours of field and facility usage to community organizations. In addition, the project will bring the Philadelphia Union Academy and YSC Academy to one campus.
