non league football site

any sunday football players here? how do you rate the chances of a website that shows results, tables, fixtures etc. for amateur and semi pro football in your county?

subscribed clubs would have their own "homepage" within the site where they could post news items and match reports for people to view and keep up to date.

and also what do you think is the best option for making money?
1) charging a small fee to clubs wishing to subscribe
2) generating cash by selling advertising space on the site
3) charging users to register and view the site

thanks in advance,

carlos

Hello Carlos. One of our clients hosts a Sunday Leauge football site which may be of interest to you: http://www.eghamfc.co.uk/

It has the fixtures, results..etc and a supporters forum.

Regards

There are a number of sites already out there that are free to use and list fixtures, results and tables for certain leagues.

As far as I'm aware, Sunday league fixtures are "owned" by the respective FAs in that area.

Anyway, you are looking at such a small audience for each league that it may not be worthwhile. After all, the local paper usually carries the results etc and, if you're lucky a list of scorers. Leagues also produce a table and results for each team which are then put on the club/pub wall.

Maybe a forum for Sunday League could be useful (paid for by advertising). Rugby clubs go on tour constantly and few football teams do. Why not try to facilitate that?

Instead of using banner advertising, why not contact the sponsors of the non-league clubs. They already have a vested interest and would probably be interested in increasing their exposure.
