Sports Event Organiser
If you are a sport lover and can give time on saturday-sunday for 3-4 months then you can earn sound money by doing this. The only thing you need to do is to organize resources like playgrounds, umpires, scorers. For a person who already play that game or is a local player and has such contact he can earn big money by doing this and that’s too on weekends only.
Here I will give you real life example of one of such person who make this as his permanent job.
Our company’s Cricket Team was participating in an inter IT company tournament. I had a chat with the organizer and he told his story to me.
He ( Mohan ) was playing cricket with local cricket teams in his early days. As he passed out from college he was also forced to do some job. But as he was not so good in studies he was not having good jobs in his hands. Finally he joined somewhere as a worker. Saturday Sunday he was just having good time with his friend. But he wanted to do some thing really different. So finally he decided to utilize his Saturday-Sunday time. Few of his friend were in IT, someone gave him suggestion to organize tournament for them as they wanted to play with different IT companies. But as City issues it was difficult to organize play ground whenever needed and for just 2 hrs match giving 1500 to 2000 was not a good idea. Also contacting other company teams was also an issue.
So What Mohan did?
He contacted few IT companies and said that he is organizing inter IT Cricket tournament. Initially he started it on small basis. Just 8 companies at a time. 4 in one group and 4 in another. So each company as going to play at least 3 matches. So over all 15 matches in all ( including semi-final and final ).
Each match was of 10 overs. So it was taking 2 hrs to complete one match. So each day he was taking 4 matches. all the matches were on weekends. He contacted local school to hire there ground whichever available. ( you don’t need very good ground with all facilities. You just need a space to play. ) Generally school charges around 1000-2000 per day. So he hired it for 4 days ( weekends ).
Umpires were his friends from his old teams. He gave them Rs 300 per day. One scorer and one helper.
He was just need to make arrangement for water at the time of game and marking boundaries. That’s all.
He was not expecting more profit for this. He was just enjoying this.
So here is the calculations. ( He arranged old cricket mat from somewhere )
Ground fees ( 1500 x 4 days ) = 6000
Umpires + scorer ( 300 x 3 x 4) = 3600
Helper ( 200 x 4 ) = 800
Balls + Water = 1000 ( Approx )
Total Expense = 11400
Additional Expense = 1000 ( Trophy etc )
So total he had expense around = 12400 lets take it around 13000
And he charged each team as entry fees 3000
So his total intake was ( 3000 x 8 ) 24000
SO 24000 – 13000 = 9000 Rs out of which he given first price as 2000 and second prize of 1000. So at the end he got profit of 6000 ( 9000 – 3000 prize money ) in 4 days. ( just 1000 less than his salary at that time )
So where is he now ? And what does Hary doing.
He left his job then and started arranging such tournaments.
Now at a time 20 teams plays in two different groups. Entry fees is 17000. ( Yes IT companies give it. ) So Total intake of money is 3,60,000 thousands. ( expenses around 70 thousands including prizes )
One tournament goes for 3-4 months as the matches are on weekend only. Matches start from 7:30 early morning to 5:30 pm. Daily 5 matches.
Each Year he organizes such 2 tournaments. One start in October and one in February.
So over all he earns around 5-6 lakhs working on saturday-sunday around 6 months ( 48 to 60 days ). When he stared this he was having scooter now he has i-10. In his free time he does other things.
This is some real thing. So if you are interested in such things having proper local contacts you can do this with any other game, provided you have some some good companies specially IT companies in your city.
