Friends Across the Pond

Over in the UK this idea of fan's running a sports team has been around for a little while and we've made some new friends who are working on a very similar model as Project Franchise. The group is Five Pound Football Club and basically for 5 of their British bucks you can own a share of a yet to be determined "football" team. While we aren't really the biggest soccer fans, we are fans of beer and screaming our bloody heads off in the stands, so these guys seem pretty ok with us - plus they want to buy a team in Ireland, which we hear invented Guinness and St Patricks Day, so score 2 for the guys who talk funny.

Overall they seem to have a great concept and are really focusing on the fans perspective to help shape how they run the team. If you're reading this from the UK or are just a big fan of the other kind of "football" check them out at http://www.fivepoundfootballclub.com/

Cheerio!
