Market & Economic Study of Proposed Multi-Purpose Sports Complex in Worcester County

study summary

In February 2016, the Maryland Stadium Authority entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the County Commissioners of Worcester County to manage a market and economic study to determine the feasibility of developing a multi-purpose sports complex in Worcester County. The components of the proposed sports complex are: (1) a new arena and adjacent ice rink to host a professional minor league hockey team as the primary tenant and (2) an outdoor sports field complex. The study will be performed in two phases; Phase I has been completed and released.

Phase II has now been completed and presented to the Worcester County Commissioners. The Phase II Report is below along with official media release from MSA.

MSA’s role in managing studies is to provide unbiased and objective analysis which provides information to local officials to assist in the decision-making process about investment and benefits for their communities and constituents.
