Why so many clubs from volleyball and basketball to snag

SOS Diy

Barely a season passes or a ereklasser from the volleyball or basketball capsizes. Now are the volleyball players of Menen and Ghent in heavy weather.

BrusselSinds the turn of the century for about twenty volleyball and basketbalclubs killed, and this year threaten the ailing volleybalteams of Menen and Ghent (women) black on this list to end up. Wim Lagae, sporteconoom at the KU Leuven, see five reasons for that destruction in our halls.

Shrinking media attention

Situation: Compared to twenty, thirty years ago, clean up newspapers much less space for the two largest diy. Play More covert each week the first class (just like Sporza, once per month), but mass audiences it delivers.

Wim Lagae: ‘King Football kannibaliseert more and more of the smaller sports. Football from Friday night 20.30 till Sunday evening 22 o’clock, the whole of the tv weekend. Also the cross has an explosion known. The diy also experience increasing competition from a new entrant as the hockey. And yet, if there is a match is broadcast, it appears that the ratings are low. Would diy on their Saturday night are not sensitive to the increasing choice of other entertainment? Conclusion: the big ones – football and cycling – are getting bigger, while the rest is becoming harder to fight.’

Amateurism in the management

‘Don’t underestimate how much the King of Football the other sports kannibaliseert’

Situation: In the company boardrooms are often benevolent amateurs. Many teams moan(d)and under dramatic budgets.

Wim Lagae: “How teams like Oostende, Antwerp Giants, Roeselare or Maaseik in difficult circumstances already been a certain stability, is handsome. But it is true of course that there are as many examples of bestuurslui that their association bad lead, without too much attention for a proper accounting. Far too many clubs from the basket or volley spend a large percentage of spelerslonen. Clubs from smaller municipalities like Zoersel or Think they might be better to take a level of pockets, where they youth can get to work. That reinforces immediately the local binding.’

Dependence on benefactors

Situation: a Lot of clubs survive thanks to a single sponsor and/or sponsor.

Wim Lagae: “Just as the championships have the diy a vulnerable business model. When the patrons Andy Rihs and Oleg Tinkov gone, also lost their team. In the diy is that often especially regrettable because, as a whole youth groups to join capsizes. You can better five major sponsors have a strong board of directors rather than depend on one individual. KV Oostende could be the departure of Marc Coucke better condition than at the time basketball Ypres the demise of Lernout & Hauspie. Believe threatens the same story.”

Unilateral revenues

Situation: the Revenues from tv money, ticket or transfer fees exist barely in the diy.

Wim Lagae: “A football club can transfer its budget rondkrijgen. In addition, the number of spectators under pressure. The catering and the vip reception are usually more important than the ticket sales. Underestimated also how much volunteers are needed for one match lead in the right direction, what the year 2019 will be increasingly difficult. Big brother football can even learn the way in some zaalclubs the fan really if a customer is treated. The football should be much less to fight for every dollar and for every fan.’

Sporting decline

Situation: In the nineties, competing Noliko Maaseik, Roeselare and Racing Mechelen with the best teams of Europe, but other competitions are our sporty surpassed.

Wim Lagae: ‘That drop is perfect to compare with football. That is purely a matter of scale. With our market of eleven million inhabitants, we can not compete with larger countries. However, flourish the national teams in volleyball and basketball as never before. At least in the women, where appealing characters to play as Ann Wauters, Kim Mestdagh and Lise Van Hecke. The success of the national teams, means we are not, however, at club level.’
