New Report “Strategies for Football Clubs: Financial Sustainability” now available from Football Business Inside

The new 54-page report by Dr. Florian Hohmann is now available as digital download.

The report by Florian Hohmann, Project Leader and Lecturer for Financial Management at the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), covers the distinctive aspects of the financial management of football clubs, gives insights to the current situation and offers approaches for improvement.

Hohmann: “The purpose of this report is twofold: first, to present the general challenges of managing the finances of a football club, as well as a snapshot of the current financial situation. Second, to derive concrete ideas for future improvement from current challenges and issues. What makes managing the finances of a football club different from financial management in an ordinary market- focused company? What did the financial situation of professional football clubs in Europe look like before the COVID-19 pandemic? What were the main issues? How severe is the effect of the pandemic on what kind of clubs? And what measures can be taken to make the system more sustainable in the future?”

The report is available as digital download for 99 Euro at
