Truman Bodden Sports Complex is a multi-use complex in George Town, Cayman Islands. It is named after Truman Bodden. The complex is separated into an outdoor, 6 lane 25 metre swimming pool, full purpose track and field and basketball/netball courts. The field surrounded by the track is used for football matches as well as other field sports.

The track stadium holds 3,000 people comfortably.

In 2008 construction will commence on a 10 lane 50 metre pool, complete with its own stadium that will hold 2,000 people. The stadium will also include changing rooms and restrooms for both athletes and spectators. There will also be a multimedia centre built as use for offices, conference rooms and a full gym. The centre will be built where the existing offices and changing room are located.

Taking only two years to be built, the Cayman National Team plays its international matches there. Truman Bodden is used for summer football camps when respectable teams like PSV Eindhoven and English scouts attend the Cayman Islands. Truman Bodden stadium was the venue for the Cayman National Team's world cup qualifier in 2008, qualifying for South Africa 2010. Although the Cayman National Team lost a heartbreaking 3-1 to Bermuda, the stadium was rocking with 3500 Cayman fans throughout the 90 minutes.

Truman Bodden Sports Complex hosted the inaugural Cayman Invitational meeting on May 9, 2012.[1]
