Top 50 clubs suffer €751m decline in brand value

first_img The impact of COVID-19 has seen the top 50 most valued football clubs lose around €751m in brand value, according to the latest ‘Brand Finance Football Annual’ report.As a result of the global pandemic, this is the first time in six years brand value by the top 50 clubs has declined. The report suggests that the reasoning for this is due a loss of  matchday, broadcasting, and commercial revenue streams.Real Madrid remains the world’s most valuable football brand at €1.42 billion. However the club has suffered the effects of the global health pandemic with its value dropping by 14 per cent compared to last year. Since last season, Real Madrid have seen a decline in their estimated brand value, as bitter rivals FC Barcelona are now only €6m behind the club due to a ‘strong and diverse revenue generation’ by the Catalan side.Meanwhile in England, Manchester United’s value alone has declined by an estimated £143m according to Brand Finances figures. Due to the Premier League club’s loss in value, Man United has also dropped down the table to third after being overtaken by Barcelona.Overall, English clubs have dominated the list with six clubs included in the top ten. Moreover, 19 teams are in the firm’s top 50 list with Leicester City showing the greatest improvement by recording over 40 per cent growth compared to last year. Akin to the Premier League this season Liverpool have also overtaken Manchester City on the list. Liverpool has recorded an increase of six percent with the club being valued at €1.26 billion in fourth. Additionally Man City suffered a £118m loss resulting in a 10.4 per cent decline.The remaining Premier League sides in the top 10 were Chelsea (€949m), Tottenham (€783m), and Arsenal (€719m) who placed eight, ninth and tenth respectively.Speaking about the Brand Finance Football Annual report Richard Haigh, Managing Director, Brand Finance stated: “Top-level football has been confronted with the largest existential threat since the Second World War. Loss of income, coupled with health concerns about mass gatherings, have raised question marks about the future of the industry and the financial resilience of clubs across all levels. “The full damage of the COVID-19 crisis has yet to unfold and it is not inconceivable there will be casualties in the form of club bankruptcies and changes in ownership.” StumbleUpon Submit FavBet’s Alex Hleb deal: “When contract is just a piece of paper” June 19, 2020 Related Articles Share Share Betfred debuts new rockabilly TV campaign promoting ‘Nifty Fifty’ live draws July 31, 2020 Betway ends all football transfer markets June 17, 2020last_img read more

Jury makes recommendations to RCMP following inquest

first_imgRempel also said the inquest was frustrating for the family, as they felt some of the evidence given was incorrect.They also suggest that not enough was done to try and communicate with George. RCMP tried unsuccessfully to have a German speaking officer speak with Mr. George at the scene, but the family feels strongly he would have responded better to a family member or friend.”I think, personally, it would really help to get a close family friend or family member in there to try and talk to him.”The RCMP ruled that option out, because of the risk George posed possessing a firearm.Rempel says Valeri George will be remembered as a good man, who loved his family above all else.Advertisement Cpl. Dan Moskaluk, Senior Media Relations Officer for the RCMP, says analysts will now look at the findings and recommendations of the jury and see their feasibility and how applicable they are.”Certainly we are committed to always reviewing our current policies and practices to always ensure the utmost and best delivery of our police services in our communities.”On the other hand, Valeri George’s family says the verdict does not provide them closure.Son-in-law Jacob Rempel Jr. says the family was promised financial support by local RCMP but they have not received anything. George left a widow and 11 children, who are now living off childcare benefits.Advertisement The inquest into the death of Valeri George finished today as the jury presented their verdict.The jury determined George’s death to be a homicide, caused by gunshot wounds of the chest.- Advertisement -The jury also presented their recommendations resulting from the inquest.First, they recommended investigating having an armoured vehicle with the North District RCMP. Several RCMP officers commented that having an armoured vehicle would have assisted them in this situation, as they could have gotten closer to Mr. George’s house to communicate with him. Currently, the nearest armoured vehicle is in Southern B.C.Some of their recommendations addressed the language difficulties experienced in dealing with Mr. George. They suggest that every local RCMP Detachment determine the predominant second languages in their area and have an officer fluent in that language, as well as creating a database of officers who speak languages other than English.In addition, they suggested to the British Columbia Ministry of Health that pamphlets regarding health services be made available at rural post offices and community centres, in the languages of the area. Many witnesses testified that months before his death, George appeared to be depressed and possibly suffering from mental illness.Advertisementcenter_img “I love my dad so much.
