Information for feasibility analysis for an indoor soccer facility

I'm doing a feasibility analysis for an indoor soccer facility to the south of Boston. As part of the assignment I need to do some market research to try and identify market demand and size.

Answer

SBRnet (Sports Business Research Network) which may be helpful for starters. For example, there’s an article that states that indoor soccer is one of the seven niche sports that are experiencing growth.

We have a market research tool called SimplyMap that includes a lot of demographic, census, and market research data. It’s a bit tricky to use, and going thru it with one of us is advised.  I recommend you make an appointment for a research consultation

I would also recommend BizMiner which provides typical costs of a business in a particular industry segment. You’ll have to drill down into the Arts & Entertainment, then Amusement & Recreation Services category, and work with some of the choices there like sports clubs for an approximation. J

Interivew someone.  Call a facility in our area to find out some of this. You’re probably aware of them, Acton Indoor Sports comes to mind as does Newton Indoor Sports Center. There’s a place in Bedford, too, whose name I can’t remember. Your market area is sufficiently far away from those three locations that they couldn’t feel you’re a potential competitor. They might also recommend suppliers of turf whom you could then contact.
