The new sports facility would be adjacent to the Adirondack Bank Center, and would be designed for tournament-based recreation play, utilized for ice hockey, box lacrosse, soccer and e-sports.

In January, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the sports complex will receive $22 million in state funding.

The center is part of the U District plan, which also includes a casino and a beer museum.
