Open an Outdoor Sports Complex

The opening of an outdoor sports complex should be an exciting process that generates positive community reaction. Most community members do not know what it takes to open on-time and on budget but the Sports Facilities Advisory and Sports Facilities Management team does. We are familiar with the work required to get the job done and we can ensure your outdoor sports complex has a successful opening.

The sports complex opening process is launched well before the first shovel hits the ground. From vendor and staff selection, to training and software, and from bookkeeping to branding; the pre-opening process is a once-in-a-lifetime event for most clients. It is not the time for “on the job” learning. That’s why you should trust the SFA and SFM experts to handle it with our proven process for success.

We begin with a planning summit meeting where we develop a date-driven timeline of action steps and projects. These projects include site preparation, zoning/permitting and construction to vendor selection, brand development, pre-opening marketing, pre-opening staffing, staff training, program development, and registration software and bookkeeping systems, as well as banking, communications, operations systems, safety and risk management, and other critical systems. Each of these systems must be executed well to meet an on-time opening and achieve the forecasted revenue goals.

When it comes to opening your new sports complex, we are well-versed with the complexities of the tasks listed above and you can feel confident in knowing that we have them taken care of. The expert team at Sports Facilities Advisory and Sports Facilities Management has successfully managed the opening of numerous sports facilities, recreation centers, adventure sports facilities and other complexes, as well as facilitated all the pre-opening processes for those facilities. We take pride in the fact that our hard work is based in a results-driven formula that we can present to potential clients as proven success.

Let us help you open your sports complex and take care of all the pre-opening work to make sure it’s done the right way. Contact SFA and SFM today for more information about our services for private developers.

SFM's Opening Processes

In most cases, SFA clients have limited experience with the opening phase. Even our most experienced operators require a project team working on the many aspects of opening. With SFA and SFM you will have a team of experienced professionals who are dedicated to the success of your sports complex or other project. For investors and funding sources, SFA and SFM’s involvement provides assurance that the project will achieve its early-stage forecasts which are critical to the long-term viability of these multi-million dollar developments.
