  13. 13. Nobody playing for the top teams in Europe while dominating almost every sport besides soccer
  14. 14. Holland has about 1 million and has about 25 players playing for the top teams </li></ul><ul>Cause analysis We feel a lot has to do with the lack of the “fundament” in soccer: the technical and tactical development at the young ages (especially between 7 and 12). Something the Dutch school is known for. And which we want to combine with the mental and physical strength the US is known for. By coping the best Academy of Holland (FC Twente) and bringing it to Dayton. OHIO-Dayton Facts and Figures </ul><ul><li>OHIO is one of the top 10 States in the US as far as active youth soccer players; amount has doubled since 1990
  15. 15. OHIO ranked 8th nationally as far as registered youth players (*p4)
  16. 16. Soccer largest sport in Dayton and still gowing (pased baseball recently)
  17. 17. Three Dayton tournaments are one of the largest in the East Coast and generate over $8 million per year </li></ul><ul>But who plays in the National youth teams or has gone professional? And who do they have to look up to? A lot of clubs in the Dayton region offer a good youth soccer product but no one is offering a “Gateway to professional soccer”. And this is exactly what the Dutch Lions FC stand for. It is our ambition to make Dayton “Leading in soccer in the Great Lakes region”. So in a few years people will say: “for top soccer (development) you need to be in Dayton”. </ul>

  19. 19. <ul>2. Dutch Lions FC - who are we? </ul><ul>In 2010 majority shareholders Mike Mossel (graduate from Xavier University in ’93) and Erik Tammer (former pro player for Ajax Amsterdam) registered the Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC and the Dayton Dutch Lions FC LLC . Both companies consist of shareholders from both Holland and the USA. There are currently (June 2010) 14 shareholders in the Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC and 4 shareholders in the Dayton Dutch Lions FC LLC.

As of September 1 2010, there is only 3% of the shares left in the Dayton Dutch Lions FC LLC and 20% of the shares in the Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC. *there is a minimum purchase price in each LLC; prices might have changed between making this document and tody Dayton Dutch Lions FC The Dayton Dutch Lions FC is a Dutch American soccer club with a European styled model with both a prestigious Youth Academy program (Dutch Lions FC) as well as a professional team (Dayton Dutch Lions FC) that played in the Premier Development League of the United Soccer Leagues (USL) in 2010. In 2011 the team will play in the USL Pro League (1st Division after MLS) and also have a women’s team. The Dayton Dutch Lions FC is a mix of 9 Dutch professional players (7 played for the Dutch National youth teams; one even played for the Dutch National Team) and 14 US players, mainly local and former graduates of colleges in or around Dayton. Head Coach for the 2010 team was Sonny Silooy, who played for Ajax Amsterdam in Holland and won the Championship 7 times, the Champions League Trophy, the European Super Cup, the World Cup and he also played 25 games for the Dutch National team. Dutch Lions FC The Dutch Lions FC Premier Academy is a copy of the structure and philosphy of FC Twente, current (2010) Champions of Holland. During May-July 2010 FC Twente had an Advisor in Dayton to set up the Dutch Lions FC Academy and train the Dutch Lions FC coaches according to their development model. </ul>
  20. 20. <ul>3. Dutch Lions FC – Objectives </ul><ul>Dayton Dutch Lions FC has three objectives for the coming years: </ul><ul><li>Provide the Dayton soccer community with a very professional, high quality and entertaining game of soccer </li></ul><ul>through their professional team </ul><ul><li>Give Dayton kids an opportunity to become a professional soccer player (in Europe)
  21. 21. Put Dayton on the soccer map as “leading in soccer youth development” </li></ul><ul>The Dutch Lions Capital Group USA LLC and Dutch Lions Real Estate Group USA LLC has one objective for the coming 10 years: </ul><ul><li>Give shareholders a maximum Return on Investment through annual dividends from soccer operations as well as stadium development* </li></ul>

  23. 23. <ul>4. How to get there Grow through great feedback on “product” vs soccer specific stadium </ul><ul>QUALITY COACHES ACADEMY LARGE CROWDS MEN’S AND WOMEN’S TEAM PROFESSIONAL BRANDING </ul>
  24. 24. <ul>5. Dutch Lions FC – Stadium Complex </ul><ul>To really make Dayton number one in soccer in the region we would have to built a soccer specific stadium in a Dutch style, with 5000-6000 seats with covered stands, 4 fields behind the stadium and a clubhouse located in the centre where all players and parents meet. The stadium would have both retail and office space for rent. With approximately 50 teams in 3 years we would have 1500-2000 people visiting the stadium 5 nights a week for practices and in the weekend anywhere between 1000-6000 for (exhibition) games, tournaments, concerts etc. It is an ideal location for supermarkets, stores, health care etc. While practicing the parent(s) can do the shopping they needed to do etc. Example calculation: </ul><ul><li>20 retail spaces for $ 5.000,- per month ($ 100.000,- per month, $1.200.000,- per year)
  25. 25. 20 (small) office spaces for $ 1.250,- per month ($ 25.000,- month, $ 300.000 per year)
  26. 26. 20 VIP boxes/office space for $3.000,- per month ($ 60.000 per month, $ 720.000 per year)
  27. 27. Rental of stadium/fields for $ X </li></ul><ul>The stadium would also attract top (international) teams to come to Dayton for training purposes and/or tournaments . </ul>

  29. 30. <ul>Dutch Lions FC – Stadium retail option </ul>
  30. 31. <ul>7. Dutch Lions FC – ROI from player sales </ul><ul>Most clubs in the USA (and OHIO) are focussed on making money through membership fees. Most clubs in Europe are focussed on making money through educating young players in their Youth Academy and receive transfer fees for them if the perform well in their professional team. In 2005 FC Twente purchased two young players for $200.000 and put them in their Academy. In 2009 they sold both for $24 million . FIFA Regulations Each time a player gets “sold”, FIFA regulation states 5% goes to the club where the player was in the Youth Academy. If he has been in the Dutch Lions FC Premier Academy, the club receives this $ each time he is sold. For instance, Arjan Robben was sold 3 times the last 5 years (Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayer Munich) for an average of $20 million per transfer. Each time $1 million went to his old youth club(s). Besides that, 30% of the transfer fee often goes to his previous club. Besides getting a return on investment in the 3rd-4th year through membership fees in the Academy, the interesting part will come after year 5-7, when we anticipate bringing our first players to Europe and getting both an “education compensation fee” as well as a transfer fee. </ul>
