OCTOBER 2016 - Victus Advisors has been engaged by the Lee County Sports Development office to analyze the opportunities for expansion of sports tourism facility offerings within the Cape Coral-Fort Myers region. Lee County Sports Development has an established track record of attracting major sporting events to the area, including Major League Baseball spring training, collegiate sports showcases, and youth/amateur sports tournaments, especially baseball and softball. The goal of this study will be to analyze the existing inventory of sports facilities and events within the region, and then make recommendations regarding new or expanded sports facilities that could continue to grow sports tourism related revenues such as bed taxes and sales taxes.
