own a Team

There are significant reasons for individuals and corporates to own a sports franchise.

One of the foremost is a sense of pride to be able to create and build a competitive team.
The other reason is the expected return on investment - as the team value continues to grow and the resultant benefits accrue to the business directly or indirectly, thus enhancing the brand shine through a plethora of hospitality and marketing initiatives.

It is understood that very few individuals or corporates can afford to own a sports team, as the investment required in a professional league of any sport like cricket, football, rugby, baseball, hockey, basketball, etc. can run into millions of dollars.

With EAGL however, individuals and corporates now have the opportunity to own a team at a nominal cost. Contact EAGL Head Office for details.

Why Should a Corporate Acquire a Team?

More than reflexes, Golf is a sport played with the mind, a high level of fitness and deep strategy. It is a relatively expensive sport. Amateur Golf is usually played by well-to-do people, senior management professionals, businessmen, industrialists, and other high net worth individuals. Amateur golfers are probably the largest segment of the elite sporting fraternity and fan base.

Professional golfers play golf to earn a livelihood while Amateurs play for fun, entertainment, networking, business development, building contacts and to be in the company of like-minded people.

Corporates organize golf tournaments for Amateurs to entertain their clients, enable networking and build relations for enhancing business and showcasing their brand. While corporate golf events achieve certain objectives, they fall short of expectations in many areas. By owning a Team in EAGL, a corporate can achieve its objectives manifold at a relatively low cost (See Chart Below).

Owning a Golf Team will serve a good tool for marketing, branding, networking, customer development & entertainment and public relations. It shall be better than hosting a golf day in many ways and at reduced cost.
