The Expenses of Having a Team
Although we all do this type of sports for the love and the passion of it, but at the end of the day it still boils down to sponsors, and more importantly, money. If everyone that was passionate about the sport could join, then of course it would become over-populated, which would be inherently bad for the sport since it’s tough to have that many teams competing at once.
So what does it really take to have a team? Besides having a strong foundation of people that are truly driven and on the same page, you then of course need the money. Sponsors are normally what funds a team once everything is rolling, but often times you need a way to start up without having the sponsors. You need to be able to compete to show sponsors that you are worth the price. Obviously someone in the whole equation needs to be able to fund the initial stages of the team, and not necessarily someone like a Franco Favilla, but someone that could take on the project financially and not be in the hole if things don’t work out in the end.
