For those who dream of running a football club and coping with all
the pressure that goes with it, then Diary may have found a
team-building package that may appeal.
Harrogate company FootieEvents.com runs a corporate team-building event
based on participants running their own football club through the
company's business software.
FootieEvents managing director Ian Taylor says the events are "based at
Premier League stadiums where the delegates get the true feeling of how
to run their own football club".
Competitors assume the role of chief executive and have to set up a
commercial team. They also have to try to keep overpaid players and
whingeing supporters happy. But if it all goes wrong you can just do a
Kevin Keegan and walk away. Boo-hoo.
