The reasons for this are well summarised in the —12 House of Commons report on Football Governance: Club owners are generally over optimistic about their management abilities and vision for a club. With ample academic evidence that there is a clear correlation between squad wages and points won  - something which is obvious to owners - there is a natural tendency to borrow in the pursuit of success, although not all teams can be successful.
There are many examples of clubs where the directors true fans have "chased the dream" - gambling short-term investment or borrowing in the hope of long-term success.
The pressure on the directors of a club to invest, to sign a star player…is often immense from ordinary supporters. This may result in disproportionate spending relative to the income some clubs generate A similar train of events had affected another English club, Leeds Unitedsome years previously.
The — parliamentary report into English football noted that, "Much of the overspending [by non Premier league clubs] is as a result of the desire to get into the 'promised land' of the Premier League or indeed to simply stay there After that, Premier League revenues can be used to pay off all the debts accrued.
Its city rival A. Roma SpA, from its ultimate holding company Italpetroli, intermediate holding company "Roma " the holding company or the head of Roma larger group of companies, holding company of "ASR Real Estate S.
In the summer ofVillarreal failed to pay its players because the ceramics industry from which their owner Fernando Roig made his money was hit hard by the European credit crisis. Construction of the " Nou Mestalla " was to be funded by the sale of the existing ground; however, two years into the project, work ground to a halt when the club could not find a buyer following the Spanish property crash.
In the lower Spanish leagues, at least six clubs, including former second-tier sides Real SociedadCelta de Vigoand Levantewere in administration with more threatened as the recession worsened.
Sanctions for non-compliance include transfer embargoes, reduced playing squads, demotion or even expulsion from the league. Despite lower incomes, French clubs do not carry the enormous debt of the English, Italian and Spanish leagues.
A number of French clubs have produced small profits over a number of years, concentrating on developing young players in modern academies, who then generate profits when sold. Despite the strong economic governance in the German league, there were still some instances of clubs running into difficulties.
In subsequent years, the club went through extensive restructuring to return to financial health, largely with young home-grown players. Mainly as a result of their lower populations and smaller economies, these and other leagues such as the Belgian, Danish and Scandinavian leagues generate less revenue than those of the bigger nations, and there are currently no clubs in the Deloitte Top 20 from outside the big five leagues, although these are home to a number of extremely well run and successful clubs.
Despite earning only a sixth of Real Madrid's revenue for example, Portuguese club Porto regularly reach the last 16 of the Champions League and have been European champions twice — in —87 and — Porto make use of third-party deals and an extremely effective scouting network, particularly in South America, to purchase promising young players to develop and play in the first team in the near future before eventually selling them for a large profit.
In recent years, however, their dominance has been challenged by the emergence of other clubs such as FC Twentemeaning they can no longer rely on annual infusions of Champions League cash.
A leading councillor said that the move was necessary because of "the idiocy of big money and the game played between millionaires and football agents". A report from PriceWaterhouseCoopers expressed deep concern at the fragile financial state of Scottish football.
However, because of mediocre performances in recent years, the SPL champions no longer qualify automatically for the Champions League group stages and are now largely confined to the much less lucrative Europa League.
Leveraged buyouts[ edit ] There was also concern at the heavy debt being loaded onto some clubs as a result of new owners borrowing heavily to acquire the club and then using future earnings to pay the interest, a practice known as a leveraged buyout.
Liverpool found itself in a similar position after being purchased by Americans Tom Hicks and George Gillett in February Hicks and Gillett placed what was widely believed to be an unrealistic value on the club in the hope of making a vast profit however, for which they were severely criticised in the House of Commons as " asset strippers draining the club with their greed".
LBOs have sometimes been defended by those using them as mechanisms to bring greater efficiency and financial discipline to target companies, although there are also examples where they have actually added to an existing problem of debt. As with debt taken on in an attempt to improve the team, unexpected failure such as not qualifying for the Champions League can cause significant financial problems for clubs loaded with LBO debt.
Such a practice adversely affects the market by creating wage and transfer inflation as well encouraging other clubs to spend more than they can afford in an effort to remain competitive. For example, Internazionale's enormous losses since the mids have been largely underwritten by their president, energy company owner Massimo Moratti.
In the English Premier League, Chelsea 's massive transfer spending since has been paid for by their owner, the Russian oil and gas billionaire Roman Abramovichwhile Manchester City is owned by one of the world's richest men, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
If you depend only on a rich benefactor however, then the financial model is too volatile. Also on the agenda was a proposal to limit squads to 25 players with unlimited under players per team at national and European level, as well as plans to reduce fees paid to agents.
Clubs also agreed that they will not be able to owe each other money, nor will they be allowed to compete in Europe if salaries have not been paid to players or non-playing staff.REPORT: #IRLWU17 qualify for the UEFA European Championships elite round despite narrow Serbia defeat!
