Crowdfunding and Football Go Hand in Hand
"If you've ever thrown a bit of loose change into a collection bucket, whether that be outside a football stadium or in a supermarket, then you've already taken part in crowdfunding."
Crowdfunding in football has been around for many years, with fans dipping into their pockets to help out their local clubs stay open, and keeping the football community alive.
However, it's not just keeping local football clubs open where the crowd can help out, "Increasingly, crowdfunding has been used by clubs to raise capital for infrastructure and stadium developments."
Crowdfunding in football isn't just about keeping local clubs open, it's about keeping the social aspect of the beautiful game alive. 5-a-side teams all around the county play regular games in indoor football facilities, but the problem is that there just aren't enough centres for the demand...which is almost double!
That's where The Soccer Factory comes in
Currently listed on GrowthFunders is The Soccer Factory who are looking to raise £500,000 to open up the first of 10 centres nationwide. The first centre will be opened on the Newton Aycliffe Business Park, complete with 7 state-of-the-art indoor 5-a-side football pitches, gymnasium and cafe/bar.
The Soccer Factory investment opportunity is now no longer available, however there are many more SEIS and EIS eligible pitches on our platform, all with high growth potential.
