An overview of the football industry
Football is a huge industry that is comprised of some of the largest and most valuable sports clubs in the world. With enormous broadcasting contracts and global fan bases, football clubs are continuously increasing in value. Brands such as Nike, Adidas and Puma have sponsorship deals with clubs and national teams. In order to gain the rights to broadcast football competitions, TV companies such as BT and Sky may agree to six-figure contracts with the organisations.
Outside of business, football clubs also attract national and global fanbases. For this reason, investing in football clubs through the share market is a popular occurrence among die-hard football fans. This may provide football fans with a sense of ownership over their favourite team or players, and it could also be an efficient investment if the club is successful.
