Two factors determine, among others, the success of a club. The agreement for the land, the building, and the manager’s capacity.
Sometimes you are faced with a manager with enormous potential, but the place available is not in the right place, or it is too expensive. It is a pity because a quality manager deserves quality land.
Back in 2010, this fact convinced us to consider the search for the land, or the place, a priority. We knew that the Decathlon group had intended to encourage the creation of sports activities near the brand’s stores and that, for this purpose, their adjacent land was bought. Among the proposed activities there was also the 5-a-side.
WSBSPORT has therefore signed an agreement with the Decathlon group to create and manage, through its subsidiary Monclub Sas, a 5-a-side club in Bouc-Bel-Air, one of the largest Decathlon stores in France. The agreed rent, partly fixed and partly variable, was perfect for encouraging the birth of a profitable business.
Today the Monclub Futbol club in Bouc-Bel-Air, after 4 years of activity, is probably the best club among those licensed by Futbol Futbol.
What we did
WSBSPORT found the ideal venue, we contributed to the launch of the project with a contribution equal to 50% of its equity, in exchange for the manager’s commitment to repurchase the shares of WSBSPORT at a predetermined price based on turnover. We then took care of creating the graphics, furnishing the club completely from A to Z and providing the IT and video system. For the first time in France, the system of resuming matches with the buzz (the magic button that allows you to cut out match highlights) was introduced, which is now present in all the best soccer clubs on the planet.
Our relationship was so profitable that its manager, Romain Sombret, has become a member of WSBSPORT and is responsible for accompanying and training the managers of the future clubs created by us.
