Philadelphia Union today announced plans for the WSFS Bank Sportsplex, a world-class, 365-day-a-year, 170,000 sq. ft, 32-acre sports and recreation complex, in partnership with WSFS Bank. The announcement of the more than $55-million-dollar project marks a significant step in the development and revitalization of the Delaware River Waterfront, creating jobs and tourism while injecting millions of dollars into the Chester community. In addition, the project will bring the Philadelphia Union Academy and YSC Academy to one campus alongside the first and second teams, furthering the commitment to youth development and the player-to-pro pathway.
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. WSFS Bank’s mission is “We Stand for Service” and, alongside the Union, are the presenting partner of community efforts including Juneteenth Volunteer Day, backpack donations, community ticket donations, donations to a Chester women’s shelter, and more.
