There are three items of business. Money, money, and money. You'll need to join a professional league. The league will have to be approached and you will have to be voted in and pay a membership/sign-up fee. A really big one. You'll need a place to play, both a home field and the community support to construct it or renovate an existing one. That's going to take a lot of money. Much of it from the community, but a lot from you, too. The publicity, and the effort to lobby every concerned politico will be expensive on its own. And the community will have to have some serious guarantees from you (which translates into dollar liability). If you don't have a lot of cash, you won't get the support and backing of the local area. You'll need money to buy players who have the skills to compete in the professional league. And this will cost you a staggering sum. The cost to do all this might easily exceed what it would cost to simply buy an existing team.
You can join any form of Amatuer Football. However, you can't join a professional club or be payed for playing yet until you are 16
