The Sports Clubs industry contains several different types of sports clubs, including large professional clubs like Premier League teams, semi-professional sports clubs and amateur clubs. The top Premier League clubs receive a great deal of funding from sponsors and other sources. However, smaller sports clubs face an increasingly congested market and have to compete with each other for funding, attendees, viewers and sponsors. Sports clubs also compete for consumer spending with other entertainment and leisure outlets like TV, bars and cinemas. Sports participation and income levels combine to determine revenue trends for UK sports clubs.
This industry comprises sports clubs that, whether professional, semi-professional or amateur, give their members the opportunity to engage in sporting activities. It excludes sports facilities without a club affiliation, the organisation of sporting events and the activities of sports coaches.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
