Annual Review of Football FinanceDeloitte Annual Review of Football Finance, in which we analyse and comment on recent financial developments in the world’s most popular sport. Some emerging figures are encouraging – in the Football League, attendances exceeded 16m in 2008/09 for the fifth successive season and some clubs have reported strong demand despite disappointing on-pitch performances – Norwich City, for example, have sold over 18,000 season tickets for 2009/10 despite being relegated to League 1. Football League clubs will be looking forward to a new deal from 2009/10 at more than double its current value, while a new UEFA Champions League deal will bring benefits to the leading Premier League clubs.
