Football Economics is an independent research organisation formed to provide insights to the football world.

We undertake research and analysis into the issues and opportunities facing football and aim to provide evidence to improve decision-making and understanding in governing bodies, the media, clubs and fans.

We apply innovative techniques to shed light on a range of issues: from measuring the success of youth development policies; to improving competition design; to looking at the pros and cons of different financial structures.

Our independence is important – with football dominated by strong opinions and powerful commercial interests we provide objective advice and analysis.
