Five Steps to owning your own LMS Franchise:
1. Fill in Application Form
Complete this expression of interest Franchise Application Form:
This form will assist us in terms of understanding your interests and qualifications.
Once you have filled in the application please send an e-mail to HQ@LastManStands.com with a copy of your passport or ID document letting us know about your application.
2. Checks, NDA, Feedback and Meeting
We will work through your application and if we believe you have the skill set, time and passion required to run a LastManStands franchise we will ask you sign an NDA, and call or email you to arrange a meeting to find out more about you and /or your organisation. It would also be an opportunity for you to ask us any questions you have on the LMS concept.
3. Disclosure Document & Offer from LMS. Deposit payment.
If after step 2 above, both parties are keen to move forward LMS will send you a disclosure document with an offer to take on the franchise. The offer will only be valid for 14 days upon which it will expire. In order to move to step 4 you will be required to pay a small deposit within this 14 day window period. This would be to cover admin / legal costs of the putting the franchise agreement together. The deposit will need to be paid before we can move to stage 4 below.
4. Acceptance of Contracts. Payment of Set up Fee.
The franchise agreement will then be sent to you. Upon recieving the franchise agreement you have 14 days to read through it and ask questions. Should you wish to accept the contract the franchise agreement can then be signed on the 15th day (i.e. 15 days after recieving it). The payment for the set up fee would also need to be made before we proceed to stage 5 below.
5. Installation and Training
Once the contracts have been signed and the payments have been completed you will recieve a copy of the LMS Operations manual. You will also recieve a Last Man Stands e-mail address and your own home page for your franchise on the LMS website. You will be given usernames and passwords to update your section of the website and sports management system. You will be required to pass an online test to ensure you have read the operations manual and completed the Live Scoring tutorial. Franchises will need to attend a half day training course before running their first league.
