The Sports Complex Special Services District, or SCSSD for short, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that serves approximately 9,000 residents living in 4,100 households surrounding the Sports Complex venues in South Philadelphia.

SCSSD is the only such district in the nation created for community benefit and financed entirely by local sports teams.
