A League of Your Own

by admin on July 20, 2010

Whether you live in a sparsely populated area or are an aficionado of an unpopular sport, you may find yourself craving your favorite physical activity without any outlet for your physical prowess. Have you considered starting your own league? It can be as formal or informal as you like. Done properly, you can make your matches into entertaining exhibitions and perhaps even sell (or simply give away) Event Tickets.

If your nearest neighbor is twenty miles down the road, granted, it may be difficult finding enough people in your area to start a weekly game of fistball, underwater hockey, or chess boxing, but if you can field a couple teams, imagine the response from the community! Who amongst your region wouldn’t come out for such an event? If you’re the only game in town, selling Event Tickets becomes a given. Your neighbors would rather watch your roller derby than watch their grass die, and they’ll willingly pay a few dollars to do so. Even if they don’t like you, they might be willing to pay to see you fall down, or get hit.

In more populated areas, putting together your own league may be easier, even if you want to play some very silly sport, like American football. Use the Internet to reach out to like-minded parties. Gather an informal group to practice, scrimmage, and play pick-up games. Once this becomes a regular habit, you can split off to form teams. From there, the next natural step is to find a dedicated playing space and set up a regular schedule of matches. With a little success, you can find a business to sponsor your team, grown your league, attract the interest of the viewing public, and cover your expenses with Event Ticket sales.

If selling Event Tickets seems like an arduous sport to you, don’t worry. You can always pressure your spouse and offspring into attending. In fact, if you have children, you can make them go out and try to sell tickets. The main thing is that you’ve finally found someone to play with.
