Sport Sector Experience

Corporate Insolvency Support for Sports Industry

Leading insolvency and company rescue services to sports clubs

As the UK’s leading professional insolvency provider to sports clubs across the country, we are experienced in supporting sporting organisations at all leagues and divisions, including grassroots and semi-professional.  

Insolvency in sport is likely to naturally gain media momentum due to the financial and emotional stakes held by multiple parties, from shareholders, directors, and employees, to sponsors, supporters, and local communities. Our sports insolvency specialists have unrivalled experience in handling the rescue of the countries most celebrated football clubs.

Sports organisations are dependent on multiple income streams propped up by fans, sponsors, and investors; however, the first sign of financial distress can eliminate income, cripple company value, and result in automatic point deductions.
