yeah that's very true indeed.
we can start as a very small club, playing in lower leagues. it would definitely cost a lot, but the club would have local sponsors, as well as local support. we could start a trust fund to get the club keep going. this is where supporters play their roles. the club could sell official merchandises, open matchday sponsorships. imagine whole Miri, supporting a club representing Miri.
i am actually inspired about the idea from small local clubs in england. i have never been there, but i have seen videos, and documentaries about small clubs playing in lower leagues in england, that represents the county, community et cetera. it doesn't have to start as a pro team. we can always start as amateur team, managed professionally.
