SFA was founded in 2003 and has produced the feasibility studies for an impressive portfolio totaling billions of dollars in sport, entertainment, recreation, and special events centers.
Today’s financing sources typically require independent feasibility studies for most privately funded sports venues. Clients select Sports Facilities Advisory because our financial forecasting models, market research, and proven track record result in reliable feasibility analysis and detailed cash flow forecasts. These financial forecasts are then used to make critical decisions. Equally important is the fact that our process is designed to solve problems and uncover revenue-generating opportunities wherever possible. During the SFA feasibility study process, our clients develop a deeper understanding of the sports facility business and improve upon their original concepts.
Almost every type of lending and financial institution relies on the SFA feasibility studies as the industry standard. This is due to our conservative approach, the extraordinary detail of our financial documents, and because we have unparalleled access to current operations data. This allows SFA to continually update our business planning and financial forecasting models.
Over the years, we have developed SFA’s feasibility study process so that it is exciting and educational for our clients. Using our proprietary models, we help our clients remain true to their primary goals as we simultaneously assist them in identifying new strategies and programs to maximize returns.
The SFA process for feasibility studies begins with our pre-work and research. We then meet in your market or our offices to facilitate a strategy and program planning session. This powerful series of discussions is an opportunity for us to work closely with you to develop a business model and plan that is based on your mission and business objectives, “right sized” to your market, and designed to increase your likelihood of success during the financing of your sports complex or sports facility project.
Following your initial planning session, we will conduct the necessary research, define preliminary construction and start-up costs, analyze and document cash-flow, and evaluate the opportunity in your marketplace. In most cases, this process requires 7-12 weeks from our initial planning session. Our clients find this process for feasibility studies energizing and educational, and they tell us that the process opens their eyes to opportunities and realities they had not previously considered.
