The Canadian National Pickleball League (CNPL) is quickly becoming one of the most exciting and innovative sports leagues in Canada. With a total player payout of $100,000, the highest ever in Canadian pickleball history, and a commitment to providing a high-quality experience for both players and fans, the CNPL is attracting attention from sports enthusiasts and investors alike. If you’re interested in becoming a team owner in the CNPL, here’s what you need to know.
The first step in becoming a team owner in the CNPL is to contact the league directly by filling out the form under JOIN THE EXCITEMENT -> OWN A TEAM? at cnpl.ca. The league’s ownership group will review your application and determine whether you have the resources, experience, and commitment necessary to become a team owner.
Assuming that your application is approved, the next step is to purchase one of the CNPL’s eight teams. It’s important to keep in mind that owning a team in the CNPL is a significant investment, and you should be prepared to commit both time and resources to the endeavor.
Once you have purchased a team, you will be responsible for drafting a roster of two men and two women who will compete in the CNPL. This is an important step and decisions made at this stage will be impactful, as the quality of your team will play a significant role in determining your success in the league as a team owner.
In addition to assembling a team, you will also be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of your team, including scheduling practices, coordinating travel arrangements, and marketing/promoting the brand that your team will inevitably become. These can be demanding and time-consuming processes, and you should be prepared to devote a significant amount of time and energy to these tasks.
Becoming a team owner in the Canadian National Pickleball League is a significant undertaking, but it can also be a rewarding and exciting opportunity for sports enthusiasts and investors alike (the good news is the league will be by your side through it all). If you’re interested in learning more about the process of becoming a team owner in the CNPL, be sure to contact the league directly for more information.
