If my team was, say, Aftershock, probably not. ;)

For the right team, it's a good deal. Does the team have the financing to get to all the tournaments you're paying the entry for? Are the players on the team the kind of people you'd like to have as employees? I know a lot of our college teams have similar deals, minus perhaps the $9k in entry fees, and probably fewer hours, but they're all pretty happy with it - having to pay less to play in exchange for a "job" that only requires their time on weekend days is a pretty good deal for college students.

On the other hand, maybe the players on that team have TOO much money. If the team is 15 guys who work 40 hours a week and are well paid, their weekend time may be worth more to them than free entry and cheap practice. Or maybe a field down the street is willing to give them more, who knows.

I do think, however, that the MOST important issue here is whether the players on the team are people you WANT around your field. I'm sure we're all aware of the tournament player with the unhealthily large ego, and no matter how GOOD the team is, you'll be doing yourself more harm than good if you're essentially paying them to be at your field all the time ticking off your real customers. If they're good guys who can engage your real customers in the game, then they'll definitely pay for their sponsorship many times over.
