Just have a few minutes here but very excited to be part of this amazing idea. Is anyone in this group familiar with FC United - the fan-owned Manchester football team? Seems like we are trying to do something similar. Fan-ownership has really taken off in the UK despite opposition from corporate media and the sports biz. Lots of lessons to be learned here - worth doing the research and maybe reaching out to the fan-ownership association in UK Suppoters-Direct.org Cheers!
Top learnings from the fan ownership experience:
(1) keep your eye on the long term objective
(2) be prepared for big learning curve and lots of speed bumps
(3) ignore the naysayers
(4) focus on common ground, leave areas of disagreement for later.
