JSP & Dragon Energy Join forces to Fire Up Clubs to Save Money & Reduce their Carbon Footprint

Scarlets Rugby Renewable Energy Case Study

JSP have recently been appointed by Dragon Energy to distribute their fantastic added value renewable energy solutions to sports venues in the UK.

Dragon is offering to install Solar PV arrays for free at sports stadia, facilities or plots of land owned by the clubs, with the clubs then benefitting from significantly reduced energy costs. Alternatively if the club has the capital to invest in this environmentally friendly solution, it would open up an impressive new long-term revenue stream, alongside the energy savings, that are guaranteed and index linked for 20 years, as well as boosting the clubs green credentials!

Dragon successfully installed the largest UK stadium solar energy system into Parc Scarlets, the home of Guinness Pro 12 Rugby Club Scarlets.

Real Madrid top rich list but Premier League Clubs Dominate the Chart.

Real Madrid top football rich list for 10th year running.

However England’s top flight clubs have shown their dominance among the highest-earners, with all 20 teams making it into the rich list’s top 40.

Manchester United moves up from fourth to second on the list, which is based on season 2013-14 revenues.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain filled the next spots.

English clubs Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool were placed sixth to ninth, all of them showing healthy rises in revenues.

Tottenham were in 13th spot, while there were new entries for Newcastle United and Everton at 19th and 20th.

The total combined revenue for the top 20 richest clubs rose by 14% to €6.2bn, the report found. The list only looks at revenues accrued and does not take into account club debts.

Real Madrid, which won its so-called “Decima” European Cup/Champions League after beating city neighbours Atletico 4-1 last May, saw revenues of €549.5m (£459.5m, at average exchange rate for the year ending 30 June 2014).

The club saw revenue growth of €30.6m, from increases of 8% and 9% in broadcast and commercial revenues respectively.

Other findings include:

  • Galatasaray was the only club from outside the “big five” European leagues to make the top 20
  • Italy’s Napoli was a new entrant into the top 20 after its revenues soared by more than 50%
  • Spain’s Atletico Madrid moved up from 20th to 15th place after reaching the Champions League final

Meanwhile, broadcast rights deals pushed the entire Premier League into the wider top 40 highest earning clubs.

“The Premier League’s new broadcast deals have translated into big revenue increases across the English top flight,” said Austin Houlihan, senior manager at Deloitte.

“In fact, every Premier League club reported record revenues in 2013-14.”

Sport Price Study reveals that a Barcelona and Bayern Munich season ticket is cheaper than any of England’s 92 professional clubs!

fan picture

The fourth annual BBC Sport Price of Football study showed that Arsenal followers are paying more than three times more than their counterparts at Premier League champions Manchester City who remain the cheapest club to watch for a season in the English top flight and almost10 times more than Barcelona and Bayern Munich

The survey found that Arsenal were the most expensive club in Europe to watch via a season ticket, the price of which ranges from £1,014 to £2,013. Their cheapest season ticket costs more than the most expensive equivalent at every other Premier League club apart from Chelsea (£1,250) and Tottenham Hotspur (£1,895).

Barcelona fans can get a season ticket for as little as £103.38, with Bayern not far behind at £109.65. That is cheaper than any of England’s 92 professional clubs, where prices start at £150 – at Charlton Athletic. City’s cheapest season-ticket is £299.

Published three months after supporters demonstrated against the spiralling cost of attending matches in England for the second successive summer, the survey found it to have risen by almost twice the rate of inflation since it began in 2011, with fans of Premier League clubs now paying almost four times the amount for a season ticket compared to supporters in Germany.

The study found that the average price of the cheapest match-day ticket across all four divisions was £21.49, up 13 per cent since 2011, compared to a 6.8 per cent increase in the cost of living. Compared to 12 months ago, the cheapest match-day tickets were up 4.4 per cent, from £20.58 to £21.49, more than treble the current rate of inflation, which is 1.2 per cent. The average Premier League season ticket now costs £508, compared to £138 in the Bundesliga.

The cheapest match-day ticket in the Premier League has risen by 15.8 per cent, 31.7 per cent in League One and 19 per cent in League Two. Only in the Championship has it dropped – by 3.2 per cent. Arsenal have dropped their most expensive match-day ticket from £126 last year to £97.

Chelsea have the highest-priced cheapest match-day ticket of all the Premier League clubs – prices at Stamford Bridge begin at £50.

Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday both boast £10 match-day tickets – the cheapest in English football and only matched by Southport in the Conference.

The survey exposed the region patterns in price variations, with London the most expensive city to watch Premier League football.

However, Charlton emerged as having the cheapest season ticket in the top four divisions in England, with only Conference side Eastleigh (£105) cheaper.

The average price of the cheapest match-day ticket in Scotland’s top flight, meanwhile, was shown to have increased by almost eight per cent since 2011 – from £18.92 to £20.42.

Peterhead charge £90 for their cheapest season ticket – cheaper than anywhere else in the top four divisions of Scottish football and cheaper than the top five divisions in England. The Scottish League One side also charge the least for a match-day ticket, at £6. The most expensive season ticket is sold by Celtic, at £600.

The study also reveals the cost of merchandise and food and drink in English football. In the Premier League, the two Manchester clubs – United and City – charge the most for an adult replica shirt, £55, with Hull City boasting the cheapest jersey at £39.99. Conference club Barnet charge £49.90 for an adult shirt – more expensive than the price charged by 11 Premier League clubs.

In Scotland, Celtic’s adult shirt is most expensive at £53. The cheapest is £30 at Brechin and Alloa.

The Conference is also the home of British football’s most expensive pie, Kidderminster Harriers’ award-winning £4.50 offering. Championship club Brighton & Hove Albion are the next most expensive at £4.10.

In the Premier League, City, Southampton and Crystal Palace have the most expensive pie at £4. In Scotland, at £1.20, the cheapest pies are at Forfar and Queen’s Park. Scottish Championship side Livingston sell the most expensive pie, charging £2.50.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Southampton have the most expensive cups of tea at £2.50. The cheapest can be bought at Conference club Braintree for 80p.

Burnley and Manchester City have the cheapest tea in the Premier League at £1.80. In Scotland, League Two side Elgin City charge just 60p for a cup of tea, the cheapest of the clubs contacted in the top four divisions of Scottish football.

The most expensive cup of tea in the top four divisions of Scottish football can be bought at Celtic, Dundee, Dundee United, Hibernian and Inverness at £2.20.
