WHAT IS i9 SPORTS?
HOW DO I MAKE A LIVING WITH YOUTH SPORTS?
Let’s begin with how our youth sports franchise owners make money. i9 Sports franchise owners make money primarily through the registration fees paid by participants to play in our leagues, camps, clinics, and after-school programs. Our franchise owners build market share and a loyal following by offering multiple sports, at multiple locations, four seasons a year. In addition to registration fees, our youth sports franchise owners generate supplemental revenue from local sponsor advertisements, concessions, merchandise and partnership fees.
Today, buying a franchise appears to be a choice between paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a franchise from a well established brand or paying much less for a young, unproven franchise concept. Luckily, buying an i9 Sports franchise is a rare exception. An i9 Sports franchise owner’s initial investment and franchise start up costs will range from a low of $36,500 to $69,900 depending on the size of territory purchased. It is important to consider that these figures do not include funds that a franchise owner will need for living expenses while starting the business.

WHAT DOES IT COST?
Low cost franchises are in great demand. To make starting an i9 Sports franchise especially affordable, we offer a five-year franchise agreement in which you only need to pay a territory fee of $15,000 upfront. In this agreement we allow you to spread the $24,900 franchise fee over five years in $500 a month payments. For those who aren’t ready to pay the entire fee upfront, it’s a great way to launch the business and access our proven business model and support. We also offer a 10-year franchise agreement where the franchise fee and territory fee would be paid upfront for a total of cost of $39,900 to i9 Sports.
In addition to these upfront costs for the five-year and ten-year terms we offer, there are other costs that you would pay as you open your business. For instance, there are marketing, equipment, inventory, insurance, training expenses, etc.

WHAT MAKES i9 SPORTS THE BEST FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU?
An i9 Sports franchise is a complete system for success providing all of the tools necessary to make each franchise thrive. Your franchise earning potential is truly dependent on your efforts; how aggressively you market, how many sports and venues you offer each season, and the quality of the programs you provide all determine how big your franchise earning potential can be.
When you buy an i9 Sports franchise, your territory will be carefully configured by zip code based on the population of kids under age 14, the density of that population, and a database analysis to help identify the absolute best zip codes. Unlike many other franchise systems, i9 Sports awards exclusive and protected territories. This means that no other franchisee will ever have the right to offer i9 Sports programs within the zip codes you own.

“We didn’t have any experience owning a business, and we knew that opening a franchise business would be easier than starting something on our own from scratch,” Alex says. “With a franchise, you get support. -Alex and Maria Martinez, Dade County, Florida, Franchisees
“i9 Sports is probably more profitable, with lower costs of operations, than most franchises that you’d buy. There’s not a lot of inventory, loss or a ton of overhead. You can always repurpose the equipment and trophies.”-Mark Cupp, Southern California, Franchisee
