Own Your Own Football Team for Under 200K


Iowa Blackhawks Team PhotoBuying an NFL team costs hundreds of millions of dollars, something well out of the reach of most people, owning an American Professional Football League team is significantly cheaper. The owner of the Iowa Blackhawks, Jake Hiffernan, is offering up the team, the home field astroturf, player uniforms, the 2009 APFL Regional Championship trophy and $30,000 of nutritional supplements for the bargain basement price of $195,000. Even in this economy that is a hell of deal to become a professional sports owner.

Iowa Blackhawks in ActionHaving owned the team since 2003, Hiffernan is now looking to unload the franchise so that it can grow and become more successful, something he’s no longer able to do. “They would get the naming rights, team rights — everything that goes with it,” Hiffernan said.

“We need to get somebody in here with some real money so we can start getting a bigger fan base and be a bigger part of our community,” he said.

So far several former NFL players, according to Hiffernan, have expressed interest although there hasn’t been a sale yet.

Just think, you could pair this deal with the upcoming auction for the Pontiac Silverdome and you could go big-time!
