Market Opportunity

In an article published by CNBC on May 2, 2020 titled, “With sports on pause, new opportunities to buy stakes in cash-strapped teams could arise”, Charles Baker, a partner at law firm O’Melveny who represents sport team owners, said that while Covid-19 has impacted revenue steams team owners are seeking to raise liquidity or exit their ownership positions. We are experiencing an increase in opportunities as valuations are depressed due to economic circumstances and believe that as the US pulls out of the pandemic sales for professional sports will rebound quickly.

Own the Experience

Prior to our offering the easiest way to invest in a sport team franchise was through Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that have small percentage ownership interests in companies with sports team exposure. For those who aren’t super-rich, but still want to own part of a team, one way to get a foot in the door is with a minor league team. Venture capitalists and institutional investors have been putting together financing deals for ownership groups such as ours that focus on teams in small markets. National Sports Services, a sports consulting firm, reports that well-run independent and minor league teams traditionally yield an annual return of 5% to 10%. That level of positive cash flow has pushed up the value of these teams, with selling prices averaging four times the purchase price after at least five years in operation.

Quad Cities Steamwheelers

The Quad Cities is a region of five cities in the U.S. states of Iowa and Illinois: Davenport and Bettendorf in southeastern Iowa, and Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline in northwestern Illinois.

The Quad City Steamwheelers are an indoor American football team that began play in 2018. They played their first season as part of the Champions Indoor Football but have joined the Indoor Football League in advance of their second season.

Based in Moline, Illinois, the Steamwheelers play their home games at the TaxSlayer Center. The Steamwheelers are named after the Quad Cities’ previous team of the same name, which played in all ten of the Arena Football Development League’s (AF2) seasons (2000–2009) and won the first two ArenaCups Championships.
