The following post will look at some sports teams that have been built by businesses.
The German football league is abundant in tradition and much of that is because of the social nature of their football clubs. Most football clubs are run by the members of the club, which are also their fans. While many other countries' teams are run by chairmen and hierarchies, in Germany the fans have considerably more say in the decision-making procedure. As fans are more involved in the club, normally the ticket prices are much lower than in other places in Europe. One German club, that is linked to a big vehicle manufacturer is so influential that it dominates an entire city, where many individuals there works for the business and support the team. Even though the Volkswagen investor is predominantly active in the car company, most of their employees will likewise be members of the football club linked to the automobile producer.
German football is much like its businesses, effective and efficient. Most of the success in both fields is down to the well managed and organised structures. German football clubs are run in a marginally differing way to places like England; clubs are generally owned by fans but financed by other businesses and sponsors. However, there are a couple of exceptions to this in Germany, one of which is a club from the North Rhine-Westphalia region. The Bayer activist investor from the US, is invested in a chemical giant, but also a firm that is heavily involved with a tremendous football club, they are also invested in other things such as energy suppliers. Whilst the staggering team does not have a huge trophy cabinet, they are a vital part of the German football system as they frequently qualify for the leading European competition, which is no easy task. The teams link with the chemical company is tremendous because it was actually founded by employees of the business back in 1904, and the clubs crest still contains the company’s logo.
Club football in the Netherlands is hugely well-known and the nation has produced some of the very best individual footballers and also some spectacular club teams. The league does not have the richest football clubs in the world, but they still manage to compete on the greatest levels, and a lot of that is because of their skill to create young footballers and then sell them on for massive profits. Most of the greatest teams in Europe look to the Dutch teams to purchase players to fill their squads. About the most successful teams in the division has a strong connection to the biggest tech business from the nation; one of the Philips investors will be totally aware of how closely linked the two are, as the team name and the stadium name are derived from the tech firm.
