As a fan of the NFL, I have been looking at how a new team would work.
I wanted to know how it would all work.
I wanted to see how it worked with the existing teams and how the new ones would function.
The goal of this series is to help answer those questions and more.
I will be breaking down the basics of the new NFL and then diving into the next steps in developing a team in cloud.
We will cover the basics, but there are some more advanced topics to cover, too.
What are the basic requirements for a new franchise?
A new franchise will need to have a new stadium, a new arena, a brand new team name, and the ability to operate a stadium with more than 80,000 seats.
The requirements are pretty simple.
How will the new team be funded?
The league is in a difficult position financially right now.
The new stadiums and arenas will cost millions of dollars, but those costs are going to fall over time.
The league will likely have to cut expenses, but the league will have to continue to make up the shortfall.
It will have a tough time building a brand and having a successful franchise in the process.
Are the existing NFL teams eligible for this?
The only team that is eligible to become a new league franchise in cloud is the Green Bay Packers.
The team is eligible for $4 billion in subsidies, but it will be the first of the two teams to qualify.
This is because the new franchise is already the only team in existence.
That means that there is no competition for the $4-billion subsidy.
The remaining teams are not eligible to receive the subsidy.
Do I need to purchase a new, more expensive, stadium?
There are a few different ways to qualify for a $4 million subsidy.
One option is to be the team owner, but this is very rare and is only available to teams that are already the team that the NFL wants to create.
The other option is for the owner to own a franchise in a different league and to be eligible for the subsidy from the league that the team currently plays in.
If the owner of a team wants to become eligible for a subsidy, they would need to acquire a team.
Will the new stadium and arena be built in a specific location?
The new stadium must be built within the city of Green Bay.
The existing stadium is not built in the city and the new venue will not be built downtown.
The city would be the new owner.
If it is not downtown, it will have no capacity and will not count towards the subsidy amount.
The arena would be built somewhere else, but no city has that permission.
The tax revenue generated from the new arena will be split between the existing stadium and the stadium that the new entity will be based in.
The current arena is owned by the city.
What about the existing team?
The current franchise will have two teams in its future.
The Packers will be in the NFC North, and will be competing for a playoff spot in 2018.
The Chicago Bears will be playing in the Central Division and will have been in the division for several seasons.
The Detroit Lions are a division rival of the Packers, and are playing in a new city.
The Minnesota Vikings are playing the NFC East.
The Los Angeles Rams are playing at home and will host a playoff game in 2021.
Is there any additional money that will be raised?
The subsidy will be $4.2 million for the two remaining teams, but $1.5 million will be available for additional team owners who are eligible.
The teams would have $1 million for each team, but that would be reduced to $1,000,000 if the owners were unable to qualify with a team already in place.
Can I become eligible to the subsidy?
The answer is yes.
You can become eligible if you own the team.
The subsidy will only be available to owners of the team you own.
Owners of the other team would be able to join the team in future seasons.
This is the first time that a new professional sports league has set up a cloud-based league to create a new system of ownership.
It seems like a great idea to me.
I hope the NFL does this as well.
