in sports tourism development & operations

SFM is sports tourism and so much more.

SFM Network is just one part of the Sports Facilities Management (SFM). Alongside our sister company, the Sports Facilities Advisory, we’ve worked in over 2,000 communities around the world. SFA specializes in planning and funding services for new and emerging projects and has been an industry leader since its founding in 2003.

Together, SFA and SFM are the leading authorities in youth and amateur sports. SFA & SFM are a founding member of the Aspen Institute’s Project Play initiative alongside major brands like the NHL, MLB, Target, Dick’s, US Olympic Committee and more. We are also the only strategic partner to the International City and County Manager’s Association.


SFM exists to improve the health and economic vitality of the communities we serve. This includes our sports tourism facilities as well as our parks and recreation facilities, event centers, and aquatic centers. In 2018, we launched the SFM Access program, an initiative to provide increased access to sport to children through partnerships with local businesses.

City officials, community leaders, and private developers alike trust SFM’s reputation for delivering economic and social impact results through our professional management services. SFM is also selected during development for our design consulting, FF&E procurement, RFP management, and pre-opening business and operational development.
