MORE EVENTS. MORE IMPACT. LESS RISK.
A TRUE PARTNERSHIP
The standard private operator model in the marketplace requires and guaranteed management fee, commissions based on gross revenues not profit, and requires the public partner to cover any and all operational losses on a yearly basis. Put quite simply, we don't think that's fair.
We created Sports Force Parks with the mission of creating sports complexes that drive profitability, maximize economic impact, increases local use opportunities and lower/eliminate public risk. All of our parks are set up with long-term management agreements that incentivize our upside through profitable operations, not through guaranteed management fees and backstop subsidies. By tying our upside to operational profitability we are required as a company to maximize programming and visitation, which in turn maximizes economic impact, development and local opportunity.
Let's be clear - it takes a lot of teams and a lot of events to reach profitability. A lot. This means our national and local staff are constantly striving to drive teams and drive events throughout the entire year; thus maximizing impact and development within our communities.
Reducing & Eliminating Risk
We want our communities to continue to grow and excel. This means they need to have the ability to confidently take on other project, which they can not do if they are covering an unknown amount of money every year from the operations of a sports park. We never ask for our communities to cover operational losses. They are our partners, not our bank.
Local Use and Access
We don't just place a manager at your park. Sports Force Parks places a full-time, in-market staff and employs over 100 local residents at each of our parks. We are a piece of the fabric of all of our communities. We believe that our parks are only as successful if they are a part of the community, which means providing increased opportunities for local residents and an overall boost to the area's quality of life.
