Financial Fair Play Discussed At World Football Forum

Wed 3rd Sep 2014 | Football Industry Events

UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations will be one of the panel discussions at the World Football Forum 2014 in Moscow in November.

The discussion will be led by the Chief Executive of Chelsea Football Club, Ron Gourlay.

Financial fair play (FFP) was initiated in 2011 and since then clubs that have qualified for UEFA competitions have to prove they do not have overdue payments towards other clubs, their players and social/tax authorities from throughout the season.

UEFA essentially aims to prevent clubs going into debt, even applying sanctions that include exclusion from European competitions between 2014 and 2015.

Chelsea FC and other leading clubs face this new reality and The World Football Forum 2014 will be the exclusive platform for one of the world’s most successful football clubs to explain how they have tackled this current and fundamental issue in European club football, from the commercialisation of the stadium assets to grass root youth development.
