Mr. Palmer, the new owner in Jacksonville, has a plan to invest in the lower divisions which would potentially have an impact on the NISA. Here are the details of the plan from his post on Reddit... "From my brief period with the Armada I have witnessed a huge impact for both brands by placing RP Funding on the jersey and then repurposing thousands of local TV commercials to showcase the team and the jersey instead of RP Funding directly. Any team I invest in (or create) will have an RP Funding jersey sponsorship. That sponsorship when combined with my TV strategy is worth more to me than most div 4 teams’ entire budgets. Utilize my marketing budgets to build the club brand through massive local TV and Radio marketing campaigns (which simultaneously benefits RP Funding). I believe a div 4 team can be a powerful local brand in the right markets if advertised correctly. All of the team games will be broadcast on strong local stations by leveraging my relationships as a large advertiser. I believe this is a key to building the fanbase/following. Once the clubs local brand is built, form a partnership with a youth club/academy to benefit from the brand and extend the RP Funding jersey sponsorship to the youth level. (8 clubs combined with strong local youth partners could result in 30k-40k RP Funding branded jerseys across the country) This combination of local div 4 club and youth club/academy becomes a massive feeder system for The Armada and bolsters The Armada’s brand nationally. I would move some of these teams up to Division 3 (once it exists) as they show the needed levels of growth in attendance, sponsorship and merchandising. If any of the teams became strong D2 candidate I would move them up to NASL and then divest my ownership so I am not competing against The Armada. A strong bank of teams that I can build and then move up strengthens the NASL’s future even further. Geographically I will follow the RP Funding national expansion footprint - we are currently in 10 states and planning on adding 12 more over the next 3 years." A couple of notes...he calls it D4, which technically doesn't exist (he mentions US Adult Soccer in the Tweet) and he would have to sell off any other potential D2 club due to U.S. Soccer regulations. But it's interesting. He's taking questions and comments on his plan on both Twitter and Reddit.
