St. Albans Football Club

Are you a supporter of St. Albans Football Club in Hertfordshire.

Would you consider starting your own St. Albans football club and building from the grass roots up?

Unless you are already a millionaire or a billionaire in some cases. Milan Mandaric once joked...I always said that the way I became a millionaire is because I’m in football, but I started as a billionaire!

To start your own football club you need people - 11 is the minimum to begin with for obvious reasons. The question is are you going to set up a professional club or are you just doing it for fun?

To set up a professional club you are going to need money to get yourself going. You're going to have to rent a ground to play your games on - pay for players and staff.

Surely a better way of starting your own football club in St. Albans is to go the amateur route - make sure there is enough demand in and around the area of St. Albans for football, if there is already competition in the area which is likely then are there enough numbers to support your fledgling club?

Due to the poor British weather if you create a facility that caters for both indoor and outdoor football you will be able to play all year round.

If you can have facilities that offer more for everybody:

  • Indoor/Outdoor playing areas
  • Locker rooms / changing areas for both sexes
  • Concession area
  • Balcony viewing area
  • Fully heated and air conditioned.

The keys to success for your football club will be to market effectively, creating an unmatched "cool" atmosphere where people will like to be, and hiring qualified/certified and knowledgeable staff to aid in the running of your programs.

Besides providing an excellent value to your customers, the new football club should be determined to create an unmatched sporting atmosphere that will add to the enjoyment of every member and employee of the facility. Dedicated to the community, you should strive to support and sponsor community events, as well as host them whenever possible. Your hope is that through the use of your facility, members' enjoyment and appreciation for sports, fitness, and for life will be enhanced.

Your objectives are as follows:

  • Sell as many memberships as you can
  • Organize and develop various sports leagues and market them effectively so as to fill them to capacity
  • Sponsor and/or support four community events in your first year of operation.
  • To create a new football club to go as far up the professional leagues as possible.

Your mission is to create a football club designed to be used by the residents of St. Albans and the surrounding areas. It is your mission to provide the best programs, staff, and equipment, to fully meet the various sports and fitness needs of your members, while generating a profit for the business.
