Specialist Commercial Law Advice for Football Clubs
Success in most businesses is measured in terms of the strength of a profit and loss account and a balance sheet. But with football clubs and other sporting organisations, success is measured on the field. This can lead to conflict between management, investors and a club’s supporters.
At Lupton Fawcett we understand these tensions. Which is why we advise our clients to ensure that their businesses are correctly structured to cope with the vagaries of life both on and off the field.
Our experienced team is aware of the complexities of the Football Association and Football League Rules with which all football clubs must comply. We can provide advice as to how football clubs can best preserve their assets within these rules, at a time when many are facing financial difficulties. And we can read balance sheets as well as fixture lists.
We also understand the complex trading arrangements, sporting contracts, licensing agreements and other contractual relationships that impact on all professional sports organisations and are able to advise on the desirability of separating property assets from trading assets.
Linked to the modern world of football are the complexities of player contracts and potential employment issues; we also have expertise in this field and have acted on high profile cases.
