The latest report details that the 2018 financial year was the second consecutive year of overall profitability for European top-division club football – a significant turnaround compared with the €5bn of losses that were recorded in just three years at the turn of the decade before UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations were introduced.

In the foreword to the report, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said: “As financial performance has improved, clubs’ financial position has become significantly healthier, with net assets increasing from less than €2bn to more than €9bn in the space of a decade, a testament to the success of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations, the stable European football ecosystem and sustained and sensible investment.”

Other key findings in the report include:

  • Average domestic top division league attendances reached a record high in 2018/19 with 105 million spectators in total. Improving stadium infrastructure led to a healthy 8% increase in ticketing revenues.

  • On the back of the exceptional TV-driven profits reported last year, wages increased at a faster rate (9.4%) in 2018. The wage growth was principally driven by clubs in the wealthiest leagues and the main KPI, the wages to revenue ratio, now stands at 64%.

  • For the first time women’s football is joining men’s football under the UEFA club licensing regime. The base of women’s club football is expanding fast with 52 top-tier leagues comprising on average 9.3 clubs, compared to 12.3 clubs for the equivalent men’s leagues.

  • 80% of clubs reported a major investment in training facilities over the last five years. These investments exceeded €1m for one in three of these clubs. Solidarity payments made as part of UEFA’s HatTrick programme are commonly mentioned as a source of funding when it comes to financing improvements.
  • Football has a uniquely broad appeal, with only the retail (17%) and gambling (13%) sector adorning more than 10% of club shirts.
  • European football increasingly has a wide international appeal with 150 foreign shirt sponsors including 36 Asian and 19 North American companies.
