​This state-of-the-art venue will host a diverse roster of sporting events and tournaments when it opens in the fall of 2020.  The new Sports Center is located across the street from the Virginia Beach Convention Center and within an easy stroll to local shops, restaurants and attractions, including the Oceanfront Boardwalk and beach, making it the perfect place to play… and then play some more!  ​​


Enthusiasm and local pride are coming up out of the ground with the rise of the Virginia Beach Sports Center. From the varied competition surfaces and specialized rooms, to lighting and sound, concessions, and other amenities—this facility boasts a well-integrated use of innovation and technology designed to bring gameday action and style ​​to both ​the athlete and fan experience.​​


​Here's an exterior view of the entrance which features the orange sunrise overhang.  When complete, the windows,  metal panel design and indoor lighting will make way for an impressive view into the multi-sport facility from the street.  5/2020​
​You will find yourself awestruck when you walk inside this massive complex and see this state-of-the-art hydraulically banked track. It's nearly finished and in a few months, you'll get a chance to see it for yourself. Woah! 5/2020​

Imagine yourself on the court or in the stands enjoying the superior-level competition that's featured throughout the building.  Whatever your sport of choice, be prepared to have a ball! 5/2020​

Work is underway to build out offices, meeting rooms and more to prepare this facility for winning space beyond the hardwood, courts, mats and track. 5/2020Accessibility is paramount! These elevators, with service units as well, will make life easier on sports fans and workers by making it easier to manuever between floors and allowing us to transport goods and equipment.  5/2020

What a beauty shot for basketball fans. The spacing used here for the 12 basketball courts can be easily converted into 24 volleyball courts. Get ready...get ready...GET READY! 5/2020Here's a look at the view of the hardwood from balcony seating (only steps away from the cafe). 5/2020​​

The Sports Center's convertible courts and multifunctional spaces make the site the first of its kind on the East Coast not housed on a college or university campus. Its positioning within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the United States adds to the City’s demand as a year-​​round ​destination of choice. This next generation venue is where athletes and fans will create memories and welcomed experiences that last well beyond the game.​
