One of the most common questions we hear from prospective franchisees is, “How do I replace my full-time income with an i9 Sports franchise?” We have low overhead, inexpensive marketing costs, and a business model that allows you to generate revenue before spending on in-season expenses. These attributes work together to help first-time business people easily transition into being a business owner.

i9 Sports is time-tested and predictable. We have more than 2 million registrations in our youth sports franchises nationwide, and our mission is to help kids succeed in life through sports. i9 Sports provides you multiple streams of income to help you ramp up quickly:

  • Multiple sports. We operate year-round, and you collect registration fees for leagues, camps, clinics and instructional programs.
  • Franchisees run multiple locations simultaneously.
  • Merchandise and sponsorships.

Low entry cost, home-based business. i9 Sports franchisees are not burning cash on bricks and mortar locations or retail inventory that sits on shelves. In addition, parents pay their registration fees upfront, before the league starts. Franchisees generate revenue before they incur the expenses of running the league.

Conserve your cash. A five-year agreement purchase option is available, which could reduce your cash outlay up front by $25,000. This is especially significant since the SBA loan program is geared toward borrowers seeking $250,000 or more in startup capital.

Coaches are volunteers, not paid employees. This saves i9 Sports franchisees significant money on labor costs, and lowers the break-even of the business, allowing franchisees to become more profitable quicker.

Inexpensive marketing. We provide a combination of low-cost marketing tactics with highly efficient digital marketing programs to spread the word in your community. Since our i9 Sports franchisees offer multiple sports, many kids sign up to play a different sport the next season. Satisfied parents and children often recruit friends and neighbors to play in i9 Sports leagues with them.
