The Sports Facility Reports "SFR" online newsletter was created in 2000 to provide interested individuals within the sports industry with information about teams, sports facilities, the development of new facilities, revenue streams, lease agreements, and other reference information related to sports facility. SFR is now published annually on the National Sports Law Institute's website.
Although each issue contains different feature articles and reports, since its creation SFR has included FACILITY UPDATE CHARTS providing specific information related to facilities in various sports leagues.
- From 2000 until 2005 these reports focused on the 4 major U.S. sports leagues (MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL).
- In 2005, charts devoted to professional soccer and minor league facilities for all sports were added.
- In 2006, a chart devoted to motorsports was added.
- In 2010, a chart devoted to green sports facility issues was added.
- In 2011, a chart devoted to major college football and bowl games was added (in production).
SFR is available as part of the various National Sports Law Institute membership categories.
