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

B) Super League [in Rugby League in England]

C) British Basketball League Championship

 

your thoughts

some examples of frachises type moves in football.

Meadowbank thistle fc to Livingston

Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes 

 

one advantage is that it allows deadwood teams to start a fresh and be more of a success in a new location i.e. Meadowbank thistle fc to Livingston.

 

part of the reason many sports use franchises is that they don't have the strength in depth due to lack of resources that football in england has for promotion and relegation between divisions so has little option but to move around the few teams they have when a team/club is struggling and or a more profitable location becomes available.

I think there was a much deeper story behind both of those moves.

Pros And Cons: Is American model the one to follow?

Relegation

For

1) Any team can rise from bottom to top (and vice-versa)

2) Relegation means fewer meaningless end-of-season games.

3) Overall the product for fans is more exciting.

 

Against

1) The spectre of relegation forces teams to overspend on players.

2) This means that stadiums can be sub-standard.

3) The excess spending power of a few clubs has reduced competition.

 

Franchise system

For

1) Teams are on a more level financial playing field.

2) More teams have a realistic chance to win championships.

3) Stadiums and spectator amenities are excellent, even when the resident teams are not.

 

Against

1) The cartel structure of the leagues blocks new entrants.

2) Regional monopolies allow owners to charge excessive prices.

3) Communities can lose their team as a franchise moves markets.
