Lake Nona officially announced that XL Soccer World will open a new 50,000-square-foot, indoor athletic complex. The facility is scheduled to break ground before the end of the year with an anticipated opening in summer 2019.
“As a Lake Nona resident and parent, I am so excited to bring our first-class facilities to our active community and to better serve south Orlando,” said XL Soccer World CEO Ciaran McArdle. “Our fully air-conditioned fields are ideal for year-round play away from the heat and rain. We offer different leagues, programs, and pick-up opportunities for both children and adults, there is something for players of all ages”
The new complex will be located off Narcoossee Road less than one mile south of SR 417 near Valencia Community College’s Lake Nona campus and Lake Nona Landing shopping center. The facility will feature two, six-versus-six 4G boarded turf fields and two multi-surface fields. In addition to soccer, the fields can also be used to play Futsal, lacrosse, flag football, and volleyball.
This marks the second XL Soccer World location in Orlando and the ninth in the U.S. When visitors are off the field, they can enjoy a break in the soccer-themed pub outfitted with 20 large-screen TVs airing the day’s best domestic and international soccer games. The fields and soccer pub are also available for rentals and birthday parties.
XL Soccer World’s child and adult leagues are open throughout the year. Youth developmental programs are available for children ages 2-14 led by professional XL coaching staff. Adult leagues include co-ed, men’s, women’s, over 30, and over 40 groups. Pick-up times will also be available.
XL Soccer World joins Lake Nona’s growing Sports & Performance District including the 100-court USTA National Campus, flagship location of Drive Shack, and soon-to-open watersports venue, Nona Adventure Park.
