A scheme we used to massive success in a former club many years ago was to virtually “sell” 1 square metre plots of the main pitch. We had a sign painted wooden board marked out as the pitch and put little brass plaques to denote “ownership”. Competition to fill the pitch was intense. Prices were structured around place on pitch - half way and goal lines attracted the highest premia, the rest varied. The whole pricing structure depends on amount to be raised for the club. Plus consider one off lifetime “ownership”, or annual/ other period “rental”. There’s some legal stuff, which should be easy and cheap enough, but nothing compares to “owning” the bit of the pitch where you scored your first 1st XV try!

The Laphroaig distillery uses a similar scheme where you can "own" a square yard of the adjacent peat bog, and get a certificate to prove it 😄

But where do you pick if you've literally scored everywhere across the line?
