When embarking on a new endeavor, no matter which facet it may be related to, there is always a great sense of uncertainty. The Sons of Ransom was indeed started with that sense. The tweets pictured in yesterday’s post certainly demonstrate that. Where do we start? How do we broadcast? What will our image be? These were all questions we faced.
The world of futbol has the most passionate fans on the planet without a shadow of a doubt. We wanted to tap into that passion in any way we knew how. This was going to be a maiden voyage for both this franchise and our group. Throughout this season Lansing United and the Sons of Ransom have fed off each other in ways that have both helped us grow into what we are right now. Granted this has been a very successful Year One, but now the question goes from “how do we start” to “how can we harness this and forge on?”
We may not be as big as DCFC, but sheer numbers aren’t what make a team and its supporters great. It is the passion of the organization to continue to improve and innovate its brand into something that all can embrace. It is up to us to make the Sons the Ransom of group of unbridled passion and support, but at the same time we want to give the fans of all ages something to rally around and be proud to call their own.
The Sons of Ransom’s beginning was anything but easy. The early season scrambling to create a logo that tied us with our city and our club, the late nights creating our tifo to signal that SoR was here to stay, and the money that we spent to create it all everything was nothing short of exhausting.
There is a pride in one’s city, and one’s club that is a driving force behind the birth of loyal following.
There have been many trials and tribulations that have been experienced by the Sons of Ransom to get to where we are now. But, with the help of fans, the unwavering support from the club and the players, this has been possible through sharing articles, these blog posts, pictures, and scores on social media. You have helped the Lansing United and the Sons of Ransom become a visible entity today in the soccer community. You have stood united with us since our inception, and we all stand united for this club.
