    Buy a piece of a real Scottish soccer club, and be involved in team decisions

    I think this is a very cool idea:

    This is the chance of a lifetime for real football fans to own and help run a real football club. Stirling Albion FC is a professional football team with a fantastic heritage. It has been for sale for several years with no serious bidders and we want your help to secure its future. If we are unsuccessful the future for the club is uncertain.

    Stirling Albion play in central Scotland, within one of Britainís fastest growing and most historic cities, with a population of 60,000 people. Stirling is famed for our links with William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and we believe it is the birthplace of modern football! ( see history section)

    This is the first time that fans, no matter who you support or where you are in the world, will have the chance to own a football league club. With our campaign you will know exactly what you are buying. The long-established SAFC Supporters Trust not only want to save the club- but to restructure it in a way that means Stirling Albion will not just survive- but thrive in the future, under complete community ownership.

    For just £40 you can play your part in the future of Stirling Albion. For this small investment you will receive an exclusive range of benefits as well as being able to vote on key decisions from deciding who should be our president to choosing what kits we use.

    This isnít fantasy football. This is real football for real fans..

    For roughly $80, you get stake in a real Scottish football club (albeit it's in a lower division), and you get to vote on team decisions. I'm actually considering doing this. It would be fun to follow the team, too.
