WCL recognizes the need for proper venues to host TeamTrak tournaments, serve as regional bases for TeamTrak teams and provide year-round centers for cycling events and programs.
While there are some 80 indoor velodromes in nearly 40 countries that are adaptable to host TeamTrak tournaments, we have developed a model for the most appropriate production studio and fan-friendly venue capable of properly showcasing TeamTrak’s entertaining format. We define this model as “a financially viable, modest sized multi-purpose arena with cycling as its major attraction”.
WCL’s National Velodrome is the focal point of the National Sports and Events Center in Coatesville, PA and will be the U.S. headquarters for TeamTrak. As the first world class indoor velodrome in the Eastern U.S., the Center will feature a 200-meter board velodrome similar to the World Cycling Center velodrome at the International Cycling Union’s (UCI) headquarters in Aigle Switzerland.
The velodrome infield is adaptable for many uses including a beer garden for TeamTrak tournaments and courts and stages for a variety of sports, concerts and special events. State-of-the-art sound, lighting, scoreboards and live-streaming video capability will enhance the spectator experience for all events. The building also provides additional space for appropriate retail, medical/training services, conference rooms and dining.
The NSEC is a real estate partnership with local developers. WCL provides development and design services, operating plans and management of all cycling activities within the Center. The NSEC is a member of the SFM Network, the single largest sports tourism network in the United States.
In addition to the NSEC in Coatesville, WCL is working with the SFM Network to develop the New England Sports Arena in part through relationships with non-profit entities, the Velodrome Development Foundation and CycleHaven in Connecticut.
