Julie and Adam manage our Leominster franchise in Herefordshire.
This was an area where we didn't have an existing league. Both work full time but were still able to sign up 16 teams within 3 weeks of their training day.
Leominster has a population of just 11,000, so they are already showing the benefits of being able to promote locally.
Their Monday night league is on course to make them a five figure profit from one evenings work per week and they already have plans to develop more leagues in their area.
Steve was looking for full time role and an instant return; he therefore chose to buy several existing leagues in the Cheshire area.
He now has over 120 teams playing in his leagues.Steve is looking to develop his region further, but is already on course to fully recoup his investment well inside the first year of trading and make a very substantial profit in year two.
The core business model is organising community based adult 5 & 6 a side football leagues.
Teams pay a weekly match fee and play each other twice a season in a standard league format. At the end of each season trophies are presented and the new season begins.
The leagues run all year round and the games are played at third party facilities such as schools, universities and leisure centres either indoors or more often on outdoor floodlit artificial surfaces. This keeps overheads low and avoids high maintenance costs.
Our franchisees have all the benefits of being part of an International industry leading organisation (fully interactive website, smartphone application, comprehensive insurance cover, full training and ongoing support) coupled with the opportunity to develop their territories to their full potential by utilising the advantages of being 'local' (promote whenever necessary, build relationships with partner facilities and use existing contacts).
There are two different paths to becoming a Leisure Leagues franchisee; either takeover one of the selected existing leagues available around the country or start leagues from scratch in a 'new' area where we don't currently operate.
