Feasibility studies


Following the favourable results of the preliminary survey undertaken by Leger Marketing in May 2013, EY was mandated to perform a financial feasibility study on the viability of a return of Major League Baseball (MLB) to Montreal, as well as to examine the possibility of building a new, centrally located ballpark within close proximity to downtown Montreal.

Based on the information collected and a conservative analysis, the return of Major League Baseball to Montreal would be financially viable under a set of realistic assumptions, including a modest but competitive payroll, average ticket prices in line with league averages, a local broadcasting rights deal in line with other similar MLB markets, other innovative sponsorships and partnerships, and the revenue distributed to all teams through the multiple facets of the MLB revenue sharing model.
