The European dilemma: evaluating the implications of UEFA Europa League participation on English Premier League clubs
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The study takes a detailed quantitative analysis of the associated costs and benefits for four Premier League clubs that have repeatedly participated in the Europa League over an eight seasons. The analysis demonstrates a positive financial benefit of participation, but this is only significant if the club progresses to the later stages of the competition and has a robust playing squad. Participation may also have further less tangible benefits.
This research fills a gap in a lack of analysis based on reliable empirical data as to the impact of participation in this competition on clubs.
