Leisure time is taking a priority, as people need a way to unwind from the stress of their workplace or other economic situations. People are adopting a special interest in sports as a way to manage this stress while remaining active.
Recent surveys have revealed that three-quarters of adults have engaged in some type of sport in the past year, and around 50% in the past month. The participation levels in sports has been increasing, especially with the emphasis on eating healthy and engaging in physical activity to combat the rising levels of obesity and disease.
In particular, childhood obesity is thought to be a growing epidemic and children’s sports franchises offer a viable solution to the problem. Parents are willing to spend money on their children’s health and future well-being, so this is a constant market for investment.
Popular sports include GAA, which has been a long-favoured sport in Ireland. Golf is also a sports option that draws a huge following. Golf has the potential for a big payout, as the sport itself is very expensive; a golfer must have golf clubs, balls and access to golf courses in order to play.
The market for sports franchises remains robust and ripe for investment. Consider joining a sports franchise today.
