Back in April 2011, we spotted the "crowdsourcing a concert" concept where music fans direct song list order and what videos get projected on stage for their favourite band. Well it appears that similar crowdsourcing concept is going strong and is showing no sign of slowing down in the sporting arena.
In Mexico, the Murcielagio Football club from Guamuchil which plays in the Mexican football second division national league takes the concept to another level. The team has no coach/trainer but are managed by the fans who use SMS and the club's website to manage the team.
Whenever a decision is required, a voting system is used by fans to make the decision. The fans make decisions such as, basic team line-up, substitutions, what players to chat with at half time along with player of the match who then earns a financial bonus.
Perfect example of embracing the crowdsourcing concept where the crowd drives decisions and truly impacts on the outcome.
Have you thought about how your business can embrace a similar concept?
