There can be no better feeling for football enthusiasts than playing for your own team. However, it may be that in your area there are no clubs to join. In that case, why not set up your own football club? Although there are some necessary precautions to think about, the whole process is easier than you think. The following tips should help you get started.
Players and Volunteers
The most important fact to consider is whether there will be enough interest in joining the club. After all, if there aren’t enough potential players, then it is unlikely to be successful. You can place advertisements in local newspapers or look for social media groups specific to your area.
If you intend to put the club on a more proper footing, then there will also be a need for volunteers to do the administration tasks and ensure that paperwork is correct. There should also be a chairman, a treasurer, and a secretary.
Finance, Expenditure, and Insurance
You could perhaps consider asking for a membership fee to join the club. Once you have some matches set up, you could ask spectators for a donation. Everybody loves to watch football, as can be seen by the popularity of the Unibet live streaming platform.
During the first stage, there will be few expenses to consider. Perhaps the hire of a pitch for practice, and some items of kit for those who don’t have their own. However, as the club evolves, there will be more significant financial considerations such as transport to matches.
It is recommended that you have public liability insurance and personal accident insurance. This will bring peace of mind if faced with any injuries or mishaps within the club.
Setting up your own football club is undoubtedly a great experience and fun for all.
