In 2008, Supporters Direct commissioned Substance to conduct a research project about the social and community value of football.
The aims of the research were to:
• Investigate ways in which we might measure or account for the social and community ‘value’ of football clubs
• Identify evidence of the added value that alternative fan or community ownership structures might bring
• Outline how the community roles of football clubs relate to wider regulatory issues
This is the final, summary report, and the full report can also be downloaded from this site.
