The days go by and the economic problems are becoming more obvious. Just a few days ago we were faced with the the unfortunate news of the disappearance of Benicarló FS. It's a shame that a team with the tradition of Benicarló disappear. It was amazing to see a live game with passionate fans that never stopped cheering. I do not know if the consequence of wanting to be where you cannot economically has been the cause of the current situation. Clearly, there are some teams that we all know that they are above the rest economically speaking and it is a mistake to create a team outside your financial means to try to compete with them. You can play in the top eight by getting it right with the signings and doing a good job from beginning by trying to get the biggest possible players on the first team.
There is a group of teams that can choose to fight for the cup or the playoffs by doing a good job and for Benicarló it would be a success to stay in this situation year after year. What happened to this team should be taken as a serious warning to the other teams who should learn to manage the clubs according to their actual capabilities.
Unfortunately, this is not the only case that's on the horizon. Talavera came out recently to reveal their financial affairs. When you depend on public money that people promise you, and then it trickles in, you cannot meet your commitments being the cause of a situation that you perhaps had not created.
We all know how difficult it is to find a private sponsor and be lucky enough not to depend entirely on public money. Unfortunately, and with the country's current situation, finding extra income is an uphill battle. We will have to find alternative ways to generate income and create teams that are within our financial means.
It is also important to have a smart club manager at the helm who is consistent with his decisions. We must not forget that the competition costs are high and they can surely be brought down somehow.
We have to take the matter seriously because they are not the only clubs with problems. Remember that Manacor already made a statement revealing the reality of their problem and with cutbacks in future subsidies. Puertollano also appears to have the same problems, in second division there are also teams in trouble. Without going any further Manzanares reveals the situation they're going through the minute they start their match.
It gets worse by the day and every time more teams are in the same situation. The reality of the country does not offer a optimistic outlook but we cannot let that drag us down under. We will have to come up with a solution because if not, next year could be chaos and the best league of the world cannot let it happen, nor do they deserve it.
Let's get to work and try to not let this problem get out of control. Let's consider that there are teams fulfilling and enduring the situation and if some are able to do it, then we are going to try to have it rub off on the rest and we get them to be the big majority. There are rough waters ahead and we need to do things better than just OK.
Let's try not to sink and try to make sure this great sport makes the news for what happens on the pitch and not off the pitch. There are many of us who in one way or another are engaged and enjoying futsal and we are recognized all over the world. Let's try to help by contributing our grain of sand and help this great sport to be around for years to come.
Let's take care of it!
