Multiple Premier League and Championship Clubs - Achieving Operational Efficiency

The Deloitte Sports Business Group has worked with a number of leading Premier League and Championship football clubs to conduct reviews and recommend improvements for clubs’ operational effectiveness and efficiency.

Our approach has two key components, face-to-face consultations with key staff members from the key operating departments within the club, combined with analysis of both financial and non-financial information received from management.

We perform detailed analytical reviews of club-generated revenue streams, including matchday (general admission and corporate hospitality), commercial (sponsorship, advertising and other), merchandising, catering and other revenue, and their associated costs, such as direct cost of sales, staff costs and other overheads.

Our analysis, key findings and recommendations can be presented in a report to the club’s key management personnel, board and ultimate owners.
