SportsQuest is no more. It will now be called River City Sportsplex. The once upon a time dream of Steve Burton and Chesterfield County was crushed under the weight of debt.
Shaw Industries, which was owed for supplying and installing the artificial turf, wasn’t paid and forced the property into foreclosure; then buying it at the courthouse steps.
Shaw Industries, which is a Berkshire Hathaway company, plans to finish the parking lot, concession stand and restrooms but may not expand the venue. Shaw has contracted with CBRE, a local property management company, to run the former SportsQuest. According to reports, River City will continue to work with Chesterfield County to promote and attract sports events at the facility.
