The Deloitte Annual Review of Football Finance is produced by the Sports Business Group at Deloitte and is the most comprehensive review of the business and finances of English professional football, set within the context of the regulatory environment and the wider European game.
Welcome to the 30th edition of the Annual Review of Football Finance, the publication that remains the most comprehensive analysis of the financial trends in, and prospects for, the football industry.
This year’s publication chronicles the COVID-19 disrupted 2019/20 season, providing an analysis of the scale and impact of the financial challenges faced by European football clubs over the financial year 2019/20, and the measures clubs have adopted whilst ‘riding the challenge’.
It captures comprehensive analysis of the business drivers, financial situations, and prospects for clubs in the ‘big five’ European leagues, the top four divisions of English football, and a selection of other first tier leagues around Europe.
The publication also explores several key trends emerging from the global pandemic, including the recent surge of private equity interest in football, the continued convergence of sport with technology and media, a renewed focus on sustainability, and growth opportunities for women’s football.
