The introduction of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play Regulations along with Section 12bis (Overdue Payables), Section 18bis (Third Party Influence) and Section 18ter (Third Party Ownership) of FIFA’s Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players have all served to strengthen and prioritise the position of football creditors and prohibit any external investment in football which is seen to remove money from the game. Lombardi Associates have a detailed knowledge of these areas, and other parts of the Regulations which may also impinge on investment opportunities. We are able to provide potential investors with advice on all of the salient Regulatory issues.
We also maintain a wide network of important financial institutions active in the sector who can offer options to assist in club liquidity.
