The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners is investing $30 million in a public-private partnership with Celebration Pointe to construct the Southeast’s premier indoor sports event facility. Conveniently located directly off I-75 in the heart of Celebration Pointe, the facility will host track and field, basketball, volleyball, cheer, gymnastics, and more. Funded through a $30 million commitment of tourist development tax, the facility is expected to generate over 110,000 annual room nights for local lodging providers and at least a billion dollars in economic output, including $392 million dollars in wages and nearly $24 million in county sales tax and related tourism and development taxes.
