FRANCHISES IN SPORT
MY BIGGEST problems with them is that they are 'USERS' basically teams move on to A different location when they get a better offer than IT'S CURRENT LOCATION is OFFERING them. No LOYALTY to fans who may have Supported the team for many years (sometimes) through very hard times for the team!
A few of the sports competitions that use franchises are:-
A) Elite League Ice Hockey
Super League [in Rugby League in England]
C) British Basketball League Championship
