2013/14 Sets New Record For Premier League Spending

Fri 31st Jan 2014 | Money & Finance

At the start of the final day of this January’s window, analysis by the Sports Business Group at Deloitte shows Premier League clubs have spent around £95m on acquiring new players. 

This is slightly higher than the amount seen at the same time last year.

Dan Jones, Partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, commented: “As we enter the final day of this year’s transfer window, Premier League clubs’ gross spending currently stands at £95m. This is a broadly similar picture to last year, where gross spending at this point totalled £85m.

“We expect deadline day to again be a busy time for Premier League clubs. However, regardless of the amount of activity today, we have already seen the 2013/14 season set a record for Premier League transfer spending. This season the combined transfer spend of Premier League clubs has passed the £700m mark for the first time, with spending currently at c.£725m.

“It is important to put this in context; the transfer spending is supported by the record level of revenues of Premier League clubs, driven primarily by new broadcast agreements. This gives Premier League clubs the ability to continue to invest significantly in their playing talent.”

The Sports Business Group will release its full analysis of the January 2014 transfer window on Saturday 1st February 2014.
