SMG, through its affiliate, Dulles Sports Management LLC (“DSM”), opened Michael & Son SportsPlex at Dulles, in Sterling, Virginia, in December 2000.  The facility encompasses over 70,000 square feet of usable space and includes 3 turf fields; three AAU size basketball courts convertible to a roller hockey rink; 2 training areas; a Pizza Boli restaurant; 4 party rooms; an arcade; upstairs viewing areas; and needed office and storage space.  The facility also houses One Touch Soccer Academy and First Step Basketball Academy, two of the largest training academies of their kind within the Mid-Atlantic region. 

 

DSM was responsible for the initial market and demographic studies; the preparation of the business plan; the location of the property; the obtaining of both private equity and bank financing; the interior and exterior design of the facility; the construction of the building and improvements; the interior build-out of the indoor sports complex; the expansion of the soccer and basketball training academies to Virginia; and the acquiring of all necessary permissions, special exceptions, building permits, and operating permits to allow the opening and operation of the facility.
