Exciting Economic Engine
GoodSports Enterprises, LLC officially kicked off their GoodSports Village concept with the launch of their new website. This innovative operating model is centered on a ‘GoodSports Fieldhouse’, a 55,000 square-foot multi-use facility professionally designed to be a premier destination for indoor sports in your community. To complement the GoodSports Fieldhouse, a GoodSports Village can also be adjoined by ‘GoodSports Campus Lodging’, a 115 room hotel facility, and ‘Splash Universe’, a 22 acre outdoor water park.
The GoodSports model is a great community partner with local municipalities, Convention and Visitors Bureaus and sports commissions to promote tourism, local spending and youth participation. GoodSports Village will be a catalyst for economic growth and development by attracting attendees from outside the marketplace contributing to the local economy by creating jobs, increasing tax revenues and encouraging development of additional commercial partners such as hotels, restaurants, family entertainment attracts and retailers. The first GoodSports Village, a $270-million 370-acre project, has been approved by the Wichita City Council in Kansas and is awaiting approval from the state. There is also a GoodSports project planned for the Lakewood Ranch community.
GoodSports Enterprises, LLC has partnered with OAN Events and Sports Marketing, Inc. to educate communities around the country about the potential economic impact of a GoodSports Village. They have partnered with Webtivity Design Solutions to help build brand awareness through internet marketing.
