Business Analysis

This part of the report presents a business analysis of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, which was one of the oldest teams in premiership. The club had enjoyed a tremendous success over the past six decades and had become the first publicly-owned football club in England and was also the first to introduce the corporate hospitality boxes at their stadium.In early 2008, the chairman of the club was considering a bold move for the organization and was also considering to increase revenue for the club through the development of new stadium.

The current business model of the club is very impressive. The club generates revenue from four major sources that include: attendance, sponsorship rights, merchandise sales and broadcast rights. Further, the club has created a “One Hotspur Membership” to attract their 70,000 fans, which has been offered at varying level of benefits from insider team updates to occasional ticket packages to full season ticket packages in order to further expand and enhance their brand image.

The investor’s base of the club comprised of ENIC International Ltd., who had acquired a combination of 82% beneficial interest in the club and was the only shareholder with a 3% stake in the club. Further, the management team of the club includes Daniel Levy, partner at ENIC, who had previously served as a director of Scottish football club but had been elected as the chair person of Tottenham Hotspur Plc. in 2001.

The value creation feature of Tottenham Hotspur Plc. was the ranking made according to their win-tie-loose record by the end of 38 game season because the high ranking team would generate higher share of league television broadcast revenues and each move up in the standings worth an estimated £760,000.

The major risk driver faced by the club is the loose of key players because it will threaten the performance of the team and would enable the team to report a lower ranking, which will ultimately result in a loss of broadcasting revenue. Further, if the club loses its key players then the club will be required to sign new players; which will ultimately require high cost to purchase rights of the player and will have to pay his salary on a continuous basis...............................
