I hope this can stick here. I posted it on the junior hockey board, but haven't gotten a response. Ever since I've played hockey at the junior level, I've known that I wanted to be involved in junior hockey in some fashion even when I was older, and in another career altogether. I am only 19 years old this year, so I have some time to look at different options in the business, but I have my mind set on buying a Junior A/major junior franchise or becoming a part-owner of an OHL franchise. I have been blessed financially, so I think I could manage in that regard. However, I have a few questions for anyone who might be able to help. 1) How much do Junior A/major junior franchises usually go for? I did some research and discovered that Junior A franchise's presently sell for $250,000 - $750,000 (and can be cheaper or more expensive) depending on location. Is this accurate? 2) What additional costs will there be? (advertising, etc.) 3) What are the general duties of an owner of such a franchise? I'm going to keep learning what I can about what it takes to run something like this, but I would appeciate your help. Thanks.
