My business Idea

I am looking to start my own business. The idea that I have are badges. These badges have the logo and sponsors of big premiership football clubs and are coloured in their kit colours. It is a completely new idea on the market and I am looking to sell these at £2 to my traget market which is 7-15 year olds.

Hey!

Im not too sure its a new idea, as a wolves supporter and season ticket holder i find myself parting with my cash in the club shop more often than not, and there is this type of badge in the shop, and for £1.00

Its a good idea if you could get the clubs on board, maybe sell through the clubs, or even on your own website, or ebay store.Might even be worth getting in touch with newsagents who sell the football stickers or cards, see if they will stock them?

good luck with your business idea!

I imagine you would be raking it in if you could manage to make it the next big craze!

Best of luck!

Hey!!

I do totally agree if it takes off you could be raking it in. However i think for £2 a badge this may be a little too much.

i do think you have a great idea though!

good luck!

too expensive. maybe scale the pricing so that it is cheaper for bulk orders. as you want bulk orders not single sales.

Make sure you have written permission to use both the football clubs logo and colours, and those of the sponsors
However, I can see them wanting a setup fee and commission
Failure to do so could result in legal proceedings, including them pursuing you for loss of revenues

Good idea,

But if you go to football regulary yopu will know that there are tons of guys that do this and sell badges a lot cheaper.

Its also a potential minefield if you do not get permission.

I love football and wish I could have a profitable business around my passion but not much that aint been done!
