In order to compete nationally these clubs have to merge . If they could bring in WWF as well then there might be a chance West Florida could actually be competitive . From the business side you would probably be looking at revenue in access of 7,000,000 . Plenty enough for all the boys .

TBU will never merge, they will only acquire. They are the big boys in town now and will demand complete control.

CC will never merge because they won't give up control (job security) or open their books on who is making money from uniforms and tournaments.

FP won't merge because they are in the area that is growing so they will get better organically if they don't screw things up like Wesley Chapel.

The only mergers that could happen would be TBU or CC or WFF going after some of the smaller guys in town other than GPS. Liverpool? Dynamo? Celtic? PCU? Oldsmar? Plant City? Fishhawk?

The mergers that would make sense is for FP to take over WC and the Rangers to join up with TBU, WFF, CC or FP. Neither will happen because WC's board doesn't really care about soccer (just a soccer camp) and MC at the Rangers would never merge with anyone (especially TBU).

Exactly, TBU is not merging with anyone, they will acquire clubs.
Right now TBU is larger than CC & WFF combined.
As long as the CC hang on to the full DA, my guess is that they will continue the status quo b/c the powers that be like the $$ & control. The girls side at CC is almost nonexistent.
Regarding WFF, if they lose GDA after this year (which most people anticipate they will), this club is truly in the frozen tundra of youth soccer. Their boys side is like CC on the girls side, nonexistent.
After this year, it is CC (b/c of DA), TBU & Florida Premier as the only clubs worth anything in the Bay Area for older kids (14 & up).

Heard CC DOC is over 100k...could be just a rumor though.

I don't think WFF is quite as bad as you do on the boys side. They still have volume and a few good teams here and there. And somehow (and I have no idea how) a DA program. It is a salvageable club if they can right the ship a little. So much urban sprawl in Brandon in need of a soccer program that it won't die unless another club emerges in their footprint.

Meeting notes:

We want Da teams at Clearwater. No we want da teams at TBU. No deal.

TBU is the only club with the sophistication to pull this off.

CC does not need to merge they do need to change a few things .

1- They need an actual board That will hold people accountable
2- They need to get rid of some deadweight that are just collecting high paychecks and doing very little. JD, KS ,EL and MP
3- promote RL to club director
4- hire a high profile DOC for DA

Thatís more than changing a few things - thatís a complete overhaul. Or just merge with TBU - they already have all that sorted out.
