Sports Deal

Brevard County has finalized an agreement with the U.S. Specialty Sports Association, a youth sports organization that will bring tournaments to the Space Coast Stadium in Viera. The 20 year agreement will bring at least 175 days a year of sports events, baseball and softball. The Washington Nationals major league baseball team currently has their spring training in the facility, but they have already announced their intention to move to West Palm Beach. The County will reimburse USSSA $10 million for improvements to the stadium from the 5 cent tourism tax. In return the sports organization will guarantee 100,000 room nights of hotel rentals, as well as promoting Brevard’s restaurants and attractions. Details at Florida Today
