The Ottawa Voyageurs are a professional soccer team in the Canada Pro Soccer (CAPS).
Since joining the league back in 1 998, the team was having so much success in winning back-to-back titles but then it took a turn for the worse. After the championships, the Ottawa Voyageurs have been descending towards the bottom of the league. Head coach Manuel Tortellini is in danger of losing his team after the league eliminates two teams from its league and the Ottawa Voyageurs are a team in consideration.Manuel is trying to figure UT a way to spend his money wisely on certain players and bring his team back to glory and save the team from being extinct and no longer playing in the CAPS.
Given the team’s recent performance which have led to poor results in the standings Being considered being eliminated from the league is because of the fact that they are falling below the average attendance and not producing enough wins. Much of the problem for the team was injuries, poor draft choices, and how to revivalist the players with compensation.As dated in the article “Become the meeting place for Canadian soccer fans and communities”. Based on my work and school experience, many ways to increase attendance is to upgrade the stadium, maybe by adding conference rooms for major companies to have a meeting and then enjoy the soccer game. Other ways would be to advertise and market the team. A great way would have the team hold a can food drive event, k run or even a soccer clinic. That way the city can see that the team is involved in the community and can have more fans at the games and increase the attendance.
The solution to the problems on injuries would maybe be less playing time and more time in the training room. For the purpose of the poor draft choices would be better scouting and the poor attendance would be more sales and advertising. Also in figuring out a way to contribute the money effectively to the players which can still help them play with a lot of passion. The way to fix the problem on injuries is hiring a better training staff to consider what is best for the players, either to rest or they can still play.For the poor draft choices s to hire a new set of people in advance scouting to build reports on players for which the team is In need of and can make a major contribution to the team. With reference to the low attendance, ways to help to increase the attendance is to have special sales on ticket prices for certain games and on other games will be free signed scarf by a popular player for the first 200 fans.
Finally the players, there is one player would be concerned about because of his age and that would be Carl Rodgers.With the experience he has though, Carl can be a leader in the locker room and show the young layers how to play and be a professional in the league. So my conclusion would be for him if he can take less money than everyone else and then after he goes into retirement there will be an assistant coach position waiting for him. As for the other 5 young players which are all big contributors to the team, they can spread the money equally and bonuses will be added to their contracts.
Much of what I researched to keep people going to the game is the free giveaways and the entertainment at the games.T harsh mainly what majority of the people care about. If the team is winning that’s even better for the fans to enjoy but it’s all about what entertainment is being brought to the stadium for the fans to enjoy.
Soccer is still an upcoming sport for many people in North America, and with all the technology and the popularity European teams bring here. It is only going to take time for the fans to engage in soccer games and come out and enjoy the atmosphere. Also having a star player which everyone knows helps With more attendance and can help with interaction more with fans at games.
