Hello list,

I'm interested in creating a proposition for extending the Sports vocabulary of Schema.org and need help in understanding the existing terms and the rationale behind them.

What is the intentional use of http://schema.org/SportsClub?


I identify Manchester United as a Sports (Soccer) Club, but this does not seem to agree with the inheritance of SportsClub from http://schema.org/LocalBusiness (Manchester United is a business, but definitely a global one.)

On a related note, http://schema.org/SportsTeam inherits from http://schema.org/Organization however the Manchester United team could plausibly be described as the Goal Keepers, Strikers, Defenders etc on the field and the bench.

Does http://schema.org/SportsTeam refer to the business of Manchester United, or the squad of 11 members on the field?

Regards,

Tom
