Leisure Leagues Franchise
A Leisure Leagues franchise offers the opportunity to earn a full time wage and beyond, either alongside your existing career or as a career in itself. The product sells itself as there are now more people playing small sided football than the traditional 11 a side game (over 5 million). The potential is huge and we at Leisure Leagues Franchise are at the forefront of this market!
Your income is derived from charging teams a weekly match fee, which after all the fixed costs (pitch hire, referee’s expenses) have been deducted, should leave a healthy profit margin of around the 50-60% mark.
On average each team is worth around £700 to you in profit per annum. This means just one small 8 team league will give you a profit of £5600 per annum. So whether you are looking to build a football ‘empire’ or just a steady additional income then a Leisure Leagues franchise will work for you!
Advantages of being local
Being local to your
leagues as a franchisee offers some distinct advantages over and above our
already successful business model.
There are three key areas where being local offers the greatest benefits:
1. Team recruitment
Being able to promote for new teams as and when you need to is a huge advantage. You may already have contacts within the football or business communities near to you from which you would be confident of recruiting teams. Even if not, you are better placed to maintain brand awareness than we are able to do remotely.
2. Facility relationships
As a local franchisee you are in an excellent position to build strong long-term relationships with partner facilities. These relationships will stand you in good stead as you develop your Leisure Leagues franchise and look to exploit the area’s full potential by developing new leagues.
We would love to see ‘every kick of every ball’ at all our leagues, however this is impossible for us. As a franchisee, being able to visit your leagues on a regular basis allows you to manage your business effectively thus ensuring the highest levels of customer service are achieved.
We have been successfully operating small sided football leagues for over 25 years and currently have leagues all over the UK, Ireland, USA and Pakistan! We are continuing to grow internationally with leagues due to start in more countries in the near future. We are also one of the founding members of the International Socca Federation – the best players in our leagues will have the opportunity to play for the national team in the 6-a-side World Cup!
Our infrastructure is second to none within our industry, with our fully interactive website receiving around two million visitors each year. This IT infrastructure alone will help your business ‘stand out from the crowd’ and would be cost prohibitive to replicate on a local level.
Other advantages of working with us are access to the savings that our huge buying power offers with professionally branded, high quality trophies, match balls and kits available to you for a fraction of the equivalent retail costs.
We also cover your public liability insurance so you never need to worry about having the appropriate level of cover or the associated expense.
Training and Support
Initial franchisee training takes place at our Warwickshire head office. The training course covers all aspects of the small sided football leagues business including:
After your training, we are with you every step of the way with a dedicated franchise account manager and visits to your leagues. In addition to this initial training we also offer a variety of additional services such as tailored Facebook promotion and E-shots to large databases of contacts.
Available in new areas where we don’t currently operate any leagues, this would offer you exclusivity across an agreed territory of postcodes. We assist you in finding an appropriate facility at which to start your first league. Then with our training and support you will be able to start your own leagues within weeks.
Receive an income from day one by purchasing an existing league(s) from us. With full training and ongoing support you will be able to manage the league(s) and be fully equipped to develop your business further in the surrounding area. Prices for existing leagues vary considerably based on their size and current profit.
