Pasco Assumes Operations of Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus

Pasco County’s vision of making Florida’s Sports Coast a premier sports tourism destination continues as the county assumes full operations of the Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus of Pasco County.

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners (BCC) has approved an agreement with RADDSports to bring management of the world-class Wesley Chapel sports facility in-house.  Pasco’s team of talented sports marketing experts and parks and recreation managers are ready to take the ball and run – overseeing daily operations of the Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus.

Pasco’s sports partners will continue to enjoy events and activities, with an existing pipeline of economic impact-generating events already on the books.

The BCC and RADDSports opened the Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus in summer of 2020 to attract tournaments and talent from around the country and the globe.  The state-of-the-art, 98,000 square foot facility includes volleyball and basketball courts, a dedicated cheer zone, outdoor fields and more.  We thank RADDSports for helping design this amazing facility, which essentially serves as the centerpiece of Florida’s Sports Coast, and for its cooperation to allow the County to bring in-house the going-forward operation of the facility.

Pasco County and RADDSports are working together to ensure a seamless management transition to minimize disruptions of Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus programming and events.  Pasco County Parks, Recreation & Natural Resources is honoring all prior event contracts, making sure local sports enthusiasts continue to have access to our world-class facilities.  The Florida’s Sports Coast team will focus on booking outside events and attracting outside visitors to our county.

Pasco County built the $29 million sports campus with tourist development tax dollars – on land generously donated by the Porter family – and we look forward to expanding its success.
