Ok, this may sound a bit obvious, but it’s essential that your society is fresh, original and unique. You can’t just start another football society if one already exists. You’ll need to decide on the society’s name, its purpose, its main initiatives and the events and activities that you intend to provide.
One thing to remember when you’re developing your idea is that your society proposal must be approved by your university’s student union. Therefore, a society known to be inherently high risk or extremely dangerous might not get accepted!
