Find Out How Financially Stable Your Football Team Is
Now that the 2014/2015 European football season has drawn to a close, we have reassessed the credit and financial risks of the world’s largest football clubs, and updated our popular virtual Credit Football League.
Back in September 2014 we analyzed the credit quality of 44 European football clubs in our Credit Football League report. In the new issue, out in July, we will highlight which clubs have seen their financial stability improve and which have seen it deteriorate. We also include three Latin American and some European super clubs such as Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid FC, Liverpool FC and PSG FC.
Here is a very brief taster of the report, looking at how the financials of a few of the European clubs and compared:
Arsenal F.C. vs. Aston Villa F.C.
FC Barcelona vs. Juventus F.C.
Manchester United vs. Liverpool F.C.
F.C. Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund

This model is used by corporates, banks and insurance companies to assess counterparty credit risk. The model expresses a one year forward looking probability of default percentage.
