64/100 Starting a Soccer Club

I know, I know you are getting tired of me posting about soccer stuff. I will try to make this my last one for atleast the next week, maybe more. Sorry its what I know.

Any way, the company that I'm currently employed at has a subsidizing program for sports where you get enough people from the company to particpate in sports the company will help pay part of the cost. Well some people have taken it upon themselves to start company leagues, and up to a couple years ago there where only seem to be flag football(fall), basketball(winter), and softball(summer) so I took it upon myself to start the company soccer league and stick it right between baskeball and softball during the spring.

We recently completed the 3rd season of this league and people always seem to be asking me for more, so I got the idea last year of trying to give them more, and although my attempts faultered for this year, my goal for next year is to not only make the company league better, but to try and make it bigger. I want to make a corporate league, that has several local teams particpating in a soccer league.

I am looking at making it a full sided league playing 11v11 on full size fields, although that may seem a bit ambitions for most companies that want to participate, because the fitness level of most corporate type employees are not that of professional athletes, but that is why rules can be modified.

I really hope that I can get this to take off, because I am always trying to be the person that came up with something great, and I have this whole idea of making a corporate rec club or whatever you would like to call it. I'm sure if I get to that point I will think of a better term.
