A financial disaster is threatening the English and Spanish leagues. The economic disaster that has affected the world of business does not appear to be sparing the world of football.
In these two countries football clubs spend a lot of money not yet earned to acquire the best players and also to pay players salaries that all other businesses simply dream about.
The Times of London has gone as far as calling it ‘financial doping’ whereby short term success can be bought at the expense of long term financial stability.
But there are clubs that are either leaving within their means or do understand the dynamics of football business that starts with understanding the value of fans. Real Madrid and Barcelona come to mind.
It is believed that Barcelona has to around 44 million fans around the world. You can imagine how much the club can collect from the sell of jerseys to just a half of that support base.
The Barcelona museum is another example of proper football business management and marketing. This museum receives a million people through it’s doors every year paying something like seven Euros each.
But for any football league around the world looking for a blue print on how best to run football and football business the obvious choice would be the English League but regrettably it is not the best example on how to run football.
The English League does not start and stop with Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. There are sixteen or so other clubs that are not doing as well as the top four on all levels of football business. Their stadiums are not full through out the season. The English game is also laden with debt.
The English game best foot forward has been the marketing of their gameอัตราต่อรองบอล ufabet world wide. They have been able to promote their game to every corner of the world.
But, for all those football leagues and clubs looking for the best league to learn from they should not look any further than the German Bundesliga. The Bundesliga is the benchmark organisation in many areas.
The Bundesliga has the highest average attendance per game through the season through out Europe and possibly world wide.
83% of the clubs are in financially sound, incomes of players are capped not to run down the clubs.
The Bundesliga clubs have the highest average sponsorship per club in Europe.
The Bundesliga has also the best stadium atmosphere in Europe and possibly the world.
