Description • Real Madrid • Manchester United • Bayern Munich • FC Barcelona • Manchester City • Paris Saint-Germain • Chelsea Examples • Mid-sized teams with strong junior academies or a key long-term investor, working to build a Commercial stream and an international brand. • Transfer fees come not only from the junior academy, but from trading players who become stars in 2-3 years. • From time to time succeed in Europe and get significant revenues. Money buys time to build-up Commercial. • Revenues are volatile and cash must be watched. • Atlético de Madrid • Shalke 04 • Valencia CF • Fiorentina • Ajax • Monaco • Small local teams with little chances to build-up a Comercial revenue stream. • Best source of revenue are transfer fees from players coming from their junior school. • Teams that do not succeed in developing talent are usually money-losing clubs. • Real Sociedad • Villareal CF • Elche CF • Stade Rennais • Atalanta B.C. • FC Sochaux-Montbéliard • Many Latam clubs Factory of players “Lucky striker” (prizes, trades, or key investor) Commercial funds team (wages & capex) • Very small and small clubs that live almost exclusively on tickets.

  35. 35. 3434 Football: The rules of the Business 1) Football has social value, and business value too 2) The better players the team has (measured by market wage), the better the team does on the pitch 3) Revenue drives long-term team’s performance 4) Commercial the most important source of revenue: larger and growing faster 5) Matchday revenue drivers: Stadium ownership, VIP 6) Broadcast revenue drivers: domestic league value and team distribution, and success on international tournaments 7) Commercial: Big-ticket contracts (dependant on TV audience) are key. Stadium naming rights will bring significant growth soon 8) Main cost driver is team wages. It determines (un)profitability 9) Business models: Survival->Factory->”Lucky”->Commercial->Digital? 10)Commercial Biz Model yet to grow, but Digital ready to disrupt like Stadium, TV and Commercial did in the past
