Development and implementation of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations
The Deloitte Sports Business Group has provided advisory assistance to UEFA for the development of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations and has further assisted UEFA with implementation matters.
The break-even requirement, the cornerstone of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations, applies to clubs in UEFA competitions from the 2013/14 season and aims to help clubs across Europe to achieve a more sustainable balance between their costs and revenues and encourages investment for the longer-term benefit of football.
Building on the success of Club Licensing System and the football family’s consensus for change, UEFA has now successfully introduced the Financial Fair Play Regulations across European club football. The Deloitte Sports Business Group worked closely with UEFA on the initial feasibility assessment, regulatory development, and practical implementation of the Financial Fair Play Regulations.
Deloitte has also provided assistance to UEFA for the successful implementation of the Regulations, including development of the IT system, supplementary guidance and educational material for stakeholders, and design of the certification processes.
