A Vision For A Professional Battling League: Regional Fighters, Team Owners, And Fans There is, and constantly has been, an issue on the planet of professional fighting: Unlike virtually other sport, a single entity controls the gamers. In boxing, a single notorious promoter practically ruined the sport (and probably did) with the method he handled and managed fighters and matches. Now, in the thriving sport of blended martial arts (MMA), the leading brands manage the match ups and, when it comes to the International Fight League, owned and operate the teams. On the other hand, the top sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based upon local groups, local owners, and regional fans working together to produce something bigger and greater than a single owner ever could. Team owners gave up a little bit in order to create something really special. It is time for a comparable vision to come to fruition in the battling world. Bonecrunch Fighting is a new league-based battling company based upon precisely this principle. In this league, local owners construct groups with as numerous regional fighters as possible, in order to acquire the assistance of local fans. The league is structured like a franchise, and looks for entrepreneurs with monetary staying power to owned and operate and build successful groups. Results so far consist of: - An inaugural event that offered out a 3600 seat arena in Sarasota Florida. - Top sponsors including the United States Marines and Budweiser. - Creation of the required legal files to sell a franchise to competent and interested group owners. - Assembly of a leading management team with management and fighting industry know-how. - Development of design template marketing products, project management tools, and contracts to successfully run occasions. - Agreements with 5 leading MMA fitness instructors and school owners (with four more in the works) who have put fighters into leading companies. These trainers have a cadre of outstanding local fighters prepared to handle other groups-- and all set to function as "turn vital" teams when a team owner acquire their geography. - Interest from a variety of business owners to buy the rights to a group. When a network of at least five or 6 teams is operating, the advantages of this design ended up being clearest. At that point, the league can begin to draw in national and regional sponsors, and television/pay per view interest-- the kind of recognition that no local promoter can produce separately. The brand name equity of the league will grow as fans support their local teams to the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star events. In addition to placing on league occasions in their locations, team owners are free to experiment with different principles, including amateur and expert battles, tournaments, and different types of fighting formats (i.e., grappling, wrestling, stand up combat, boxing, and other formats that become popular). Because the league is seeking to achieve critical mass, preliminary franchises are priced at only $20,000 (compared to most other franchises, sports or otherwise, and the discount rate is significant). This helpful pricing offers early adopters the possibility to recognize a significant capital gain, because later owners will pay a premium. At the very same time, Bonecrunch carefully screens possible owners to make sure that they have the long-lasting vision and needed capital for their team, and the league, to prosper. Contrast this idea with its nearby rival, the International Fight League (IFL). The IFL has actually raised over $15 million dollars to draw in and produce league-owned teams television offers. Its stock rate has actually had a roller rollercoaster trip and presently trades at under $1 after reaching highs of $17 and the league has a hard time to contain costs and attain profitability. At the same time, Bonecrunch is a grassroots effort that requires much less capital from a group of dedicated group owners, trainers, and fighters in order to succeed. Using the franchise model, Bonecrunch can grow naturally and achieve emergency with a comparably small financial investment. Time will tell if this vehicle can succeed in the highly competitive, fickle, and regulated world of battling. However, it is time to bring this model to what has been a centrally managed sport and discover what type of distinction it can make-- to fans, fighters, and the business owners who acquire a franchise and own an expert sports team. In contrast, the top sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all was successful based on local groups, regional owners, and regional fans working together to produce something larger and higher than a single owner ever could. In this league, regional owners build teams with as numerous regional fighters as possible, in order to gain the assistance of local fans. The brand equity of the league will grow as fans support their local teams towards the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star occasions. In addition to putting on league events in their geographies, group owners are totally free to experiment with various ideas, including expert and amateur battles, tournaments, and various types of combating formats (i.e., grappling, wrestling, stand up combat, boxing, and other formats that end up being popular). At the very same time, Bonecrunch thoroughly screens possible owners to make sure that they have the long-lasting vision and required capital for their group, and the league, to prosper.
