OBJECTIVE INVESTMENT DECISIONS

We advise and support club owners and investors in achieving their sporting ambitions. We provide research, insights and projections using our proprietary algorithms and databases. We also support the pre-acquisition, due diligence and post-acquisition stages, building a full road map from club identification to on-site visits to planning the first 100 days upon completion.

PRE-ACQUISITION

CLUB MARKET EVALUATION

Derived from client discussions, we use objective criteria and market analysis models to identify the best territories and narrow down the search. We provide landscape analysis on different markets as well as guidance on over or under performance of clubs.

INVESTMENT PROJECTION

We use proprietary probability models to project how and at what level investment and capital injections would be required to achieve certain sporting outcomes such as league finish or qualification for Europe.

PLAYER TRADING

We assess the target club’s transfer flows and the tendencies compared to their league. We assess their go-to markets and identify strengths and inefficiencies in player trading operations, including age profiles, transfer success, “hit rate” and return on investment.

SQUAD AUDIT

We fuse performance data and business analytics as well as assessing market factors, specific club/country factors to build models predicting the current over or under performance of a club’s playing and coaching staff, the club’s future potential performance and the revenue value of the club’s player portfolio.

ACADEMY VALUE FOR MONEY

We benchmark the capacity and productivity of club academies against others across the world, looking at historical return on investment both internally (savings on transfer fees or salary) and externally (player sales). In addition, we also use statistical modelling of the productivity potential of the geographical area in which the club is located.

POST-ACQUISITION

STRATEGIC PLANNING: “FIRST 100 DAYS”

We make sure that clients hit the ground running when completing their acquisition. We have developed an objective framework to fully “audit” every department of the club and provide recommendations and action plans to maximise the positive momentum of new ownership.
