HOW MUCH DO OUR PARTNERED CLUBS LOSE EACH YEAR TO AGENTS?
From 2018-2019, professional English football clubs spent a record of around £318m on football agents, which represents a £60m increase on the previous year:
CLUB DIRECTORS – FANS – SHAREHOLDERS
The Football Supporters’ Federation also join the campaign and said that fans and club shareholders find the amount of spending “shocking” and called for even more transparency in how this money was spent, especially when there are some clubs in huge financial difficulty.
AIDING GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL / COMMUNITY BUDGETS
The PRO FOOTBALLERS GROUP believes the money saved on agents could be spent wiser improving club community projects and their local facilities. In July 2018, Gary Neville suggested that a levy on agents’ fees would be an effective way for the Football Association to fund grassroots football. The former England defender was giving evidence to a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) parliamentary hearing shortly after the FA had announced plans to sell Wembley Stadium for £600m to help pay for grassroots football improvements.
