Five ways to get over World Cup heartache by starting a franchise
The heatwave seemed to last forever, beer was flowing, and it really did feel like football was coming home. That was until Englandís 2018 World Cup adventure was cut short in a 2 Ė 1 defeat against Croatia in a nail-biting semi-final.
So after 56 days, two friendly matches, seven World Cup games, and 12 goals, Southgate and his team are now back home and enjoying a well-earned break before they start pre-season training with their Premier League clubs.
Coming fourth at the World Cup was more than England fans could have hoped for before the tournament started. But Southgateís young, inexperienced squad played better than expected which raised hopes and spirits, making the final two defeats even tougher to take.
Whether youíre a football fan or not, thereís no denying that the whole nation enjoyed a brilliant few weeks. Everyone rallied behind the Three Lions, who showed great spirit in Russia during their run to the semi-finals.
But if youíre struggling to deal with the thought of four years until the next World Cup, here are 5 of the best franchise opportunities to help get over your heartache.
1. Inspire the next generation with a Progressive Sports franchise
Progressive Sports is one of the primary providers of sport and physical education to children aged 3 to 13-year-olds. If youíre passionate about making sport easily accessible to everyone, inspiring children and helping youngsters increase their self-confidence, then owning a franchise with Progressive Sports could be for you.
Life as a Progressive Sports franchisee is varied and rewarding. Not only do you offer sports solutions to parents, teachers and community group leaders but you also get to teach children how to dance, perform gymnastics, play football, and much more. These activities not only improve childrenís health but can increase their social skills and academic success too.

2. Get away from it all with a GoCruise franchise.
If youíd rather take the Ďhead in the sandí approach and pretend that England never crashed out of the World Cup, you could consider owning a franchise with GoCruise. The popularity of cruising is on the rise with a whopping 25.3 million passengers setting sail in 2017, up from 24.2 million the year before.
