Check out My Football Club
This is one of the most novel concepts I have seen in all of professional team sports. http://myfootballclub.co.uk/ is a group of fans trying to buy a Football League club in the UK. The club would be run by the fans and all major decisions would be made by the fans. While the concept may seem outlandish and unattainable, check out their website and feel free to sign up as I did.
