SFA and SFM Project Notes

Performance Update: SFM’s Leadership Team met its year one booking objectives three months prior to the August 2014 Grand Opening. Year one forecasted economic impact to be $10M; the actual year one economic impact was $17M. Year one also forecasted 26 events; actual booked and delivered events were 46 in total.

This is one of the best sports complexes in the area. The fields are artificial turf so no rain delays. The restrooms are always clean and the food from the snack bar is better than most.
