Club Financing and Valuation

Clubs are valued based on numerous factors not limited to the enterprise values (equity plus debt) based on multiple sources of revenue. Income is generated from broadcast agreements, premium seating and match day ticket sales, media, brand and product licensing, and merchandise and concessions sales. The valuation of a team is also based on the worth of its roster, including transfers fees (both incoming and outgoing) and, on an individual basis, length of contact (for purposes of depreciation). Also taken into consideration is the value of the club’s stadium and facilities.
