From the blog post:
The new indoor sports venue, which will be adjacent to the Jostens Center, will feature a flexible design that can morph from one large competition space capable of seating more than 8,000 fans to as many as four separate competition areas. It will be so flexible that it can be configured to host a variety of other sports, such as basketball and volleyball, as well as concerts.

The big question is with this venue and the new soundstage they built by Rockin Rollercoaster does this mean the Indy stage is now no longer needed and can be destroyed for a new attraction (that in my dreams would be a clone of Forbidden Eye.)
That's the weirdest dotted line logic I've seen in awhile.
The traveling sports market seems like such an obvious thing to pursue. I once looked into building a 4-court building for volleyball in the Midwest, and in my recreational pursuit of the topic found that there are never enough venues available for various kinds of sports leagues, and the buildings themselves are not that expensive to build or operate. For theme park operators to build them is a total win and it diversifies their product.
Which s exactly why you're seeing it at CP. the Charlotte area has been looking to revitalize the area around the newly renovated Bojangkes (neé Charlotte) Coliseum and that was the prevailing plan that has yet to find a good enough partner.
Mayhaps Cedar Fair should step in...
