// About EDGE Sports Global

Our team, our philosopy and our approach

EDGE Sports Global was formed to react to the growing demand for Public Private Partnerships that provide year round family-oriented athletic venues. We assist clients in navigating through public processes at the local, state and federal levels; work with private capital and conventional lenders to obtain financing; and establish the programming and operational framework required to sustain the model.

EDGE Sports Global is a full-service company that brings over 30 years of private and public recreational design experience and offers the full range of strategic and operational services in: Assessment, Feasibility & Market Studies; Design, Permit & Construction Management; and Programming & Operations.

Our Philosophy

EDGE Sports Global’s project philosophy is centered in community engagement. Having developed and operated many of the newest family oriented athletic venues in Massachusetts through public private partnerships, EDGE Sports Global prides itself on fostering relationships with each possible end user through an “outside-in” perspective. Our team then works to combine those relationships with our comprehensive real-world design, development, financial, and operational industry knowledge to create one of a kind athletic ecosystem within budget. Our ever evolving “One Stop Shop” approach allows EDGE Sports Global to be uniquely positioned in the ever-changing complex road of athletic development alongside our industry leading partners to serve our clients every need.

Our Approach

EDGE Sports Global’s full array service approach is anchored in our philosophy of community engagement and project sustainability, backed by a proven track record of delivering communities best-in-class family oriented athletic venues. EDGE Sports Global’s approach stems from years of developing Public Private Partnerships through community engagement with an “outside-in” perspective. This practice represents EDGE Sports Global’s deliberate approach to avoid the common inward-focus bias and the presentation of preordained development concepts. Instead, our focus becomes a systematic and immersive analysis through community engagement of what facility uses and needs are relevant to both our client and the community they plan to serve for long term project sustainability. The crucial step is making a creative leap to discover a unique combination of surfaces that meets a client’s existing and projected demands, but that simultaneously never loses a direct line of sight to the end-user needs.

As a multi-faceted developer and operator, EDGE Sports Global assists clients with their vision by fostering community engagement, providing the resources and experiences necessary for a successful project, providing various financial mechanism required to complete it, and select the right people to refine and execute not only the study but the ultimate recreational development.

EDGE Sports Global brings all aspects of a full-scale development team to each project: industry leading designers & architects, study expertise, multifaceted construction & engineering experience, financial structuring, local project experience, athletic facilities management, comprehensive understanding of sports and entertainment-related facilities development. If granted the opportunity to work with a community EDGE Sports Global will assist any client’s development needs through a seamless process.
