    *As initial investment period is based on 3 months, $1,500 is included above.

In the five-year agreement option, the Franchise Fee is paid monthly over five years. 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.

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. Full details can be found in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).

The name “i9 Sports®” was chosen to symbolize nine key differences in our approach to youth sports: imaginative, innovative, interactive, integrity-driven, impassioned, inspirational, instructional, insightful and inclusivei9 Sports® literally means “i to the 9th power.”

Our royalty rate is 7.5% of your monthly gross revenues, and the national brand fund fee is the greater of 1% of your monthly gross revenue or $275.

i9 Sports® can introduce you to outside third-party lenders who may be able to help.

Our franchisees enjoy multiple profit opportunities from player registration fees, sponsorships, concessions and merchandise sales. i9 Sports® is proud to be among franchisors who provide financial performance details in item 19 of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Please contact us to receive your own copy of our FDD.

We offer large territories based on child population, availability in a specific market area, and the density of i9 Sports® target customers. Our franchise territories are exclusive and protected, which ensures that no other franchise will be placed in the same area. As some markets are already sold out, please contact us to see if territory is available where you live.

No. As an i9 Sports® franchisee, you don’t purchase real estate or facilities so you are never tied to a specific location and can develop multiple league locations within your exclusive territory. Because of this, your i9 Sports® franchise is essentially a multi-unit franchise at the price of one.

You will have the rights to own all of the following sports: Flag Football, Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, ZIP Lacrosse and Cheerleading

Owning and operating an i9 Sports® franchise is a full-time career opportunity. As “CEO” of your own business offering multiple sports, at multiple locations, four seasons a year, you will have your hands full. But then again, who would want to do anything else?

Our business model, with the “i9 Sports® Experience” as its centerpiece, has redefined youth sports across the nation with a simple focus on fun and good sportsmanship. Unlike the hyper-competitive, win-at-all-cost approach taken by other youth leagues today, we believe that sports should focus on age-appropriate instruction, fun and a convenient experience where kids learn athletic skills and good sportsmanship values that will last a lifetime.
