AMERICAN BEACH SOCCER - A CROWD FUNDED BUSINESS
March 4, 2017
Letter from Bob Armell and Alex Soares on the subject of
Professional Beach Soccer
This letter is as much about asking questions as it is about getting answers. Its initial publication on Facebook will go out to our friends in beach soccer and hopefully on to yours as well.
Q: Is there such a thing as an international beach soccer community?
Q: Is there a beach soccer community in your country?
Q: Are you a part of a beach soccer community?
Q: Are you a beach soccer player?
Q: Are you a beach soccer fan?
Q: Have you ever played in a beach soccer tournament?
Q: Have you ever seen an adult professional beach soccer game?
Q: Do you think there will someday be an American Beach Soccer League for professional men and women players?
Q: Do you know when there will be an American Beach Soccer League for professional men and women players?
Q: Do you know who will fund and thereby own the American Beach Soccer League?
Q: If you could, would you want to own an equity share of the American Beach Soccer League?
There you have it – we know there will be an American Beach Soccer League. We think you know that as well. We know it will create many new jobs, jobs that currently don’t exist in America today. We know it will demonstrate the wonderful skills and beauty of beach soccer as well as delight fans who love great sports competition. We know it will bring revenue into the towns and cities of beach soccer franchises.
Knowing these things, what can we do? Can we use our community and the power of the internet to begin an equity crowd funding drive? Can we develop a business plan to demonstrate our understanding of the operations and funding required to run the American Beach Soccer League? Can we form a core group of volunteers with social media skills who will be able to take on the task of spearheading this effort?
This conversation needs to take place on multiple social media platforms. To start, this letter will first be published on the American Beach Soccer League facebook page. If you want to volunteer to be part of a communications team, please contact us.
