As summer approaches and spring sports go into remission, it can be hard for some facilities to turn a profit. After all, without the draw of games and the money from tickets, irrelevance seems somewhat inevitable.
But this doesn’t need to be the case! With a little resourcefulness and quick thinking, your sports facility can still turn out a significant chunk of cash, even when it’s not serving the purpose for which it was designed. Fieldwallpads.com, your sports padding supplier of choice, explains how below.
For Indoor Facilities
You’ve got versatility on your side here! Being sheltered from the elements means there are plenty of opportunities for you to make more than a few bucks when the home team isn’t the main attraction.
Consider, for example, renting the space to smaller clubs or leagues. For children, there’s nothing quite like playing in the same space that their favorite athletes and teams do. Just remember to invest in some solid wall padding! Kids can be unpredictable, and you don’t want excess liability on your hands.
Hosting community events can also be somewhat of a money maker. While it’s not lucrative, per se, it can serve as good PR for your stadium. Branded products such as window decals and wall murals can help to make sure the community remembers your name.
For Outdoor Facilities
This one’s a little harder, as anything indoor facilities can do during the winter you must postpone. Your biggest opportunity is designating your facility as a multi-sports one. This way, you can pull in money three quarters out of four! Just be sure you’ve got all the necessary pole pads and sports venue padding. Different sports have different protective needs, and you want to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered.
Colleges in particular can take advantage of the multi-sport factor by decking out their facility in branded window graphics and athletic padding. A new sport presented to a potential spectator with a familiar mascot and ambiance becomes much more appealing.
Other than that, many of the money-makers available to indoor facilities are also available to you. You’ll just need to be a little extra on top of things when it comes to planning and your finances.
