Our work

 

  • We have advised Clubs on legal and governance structures with a view to protecting assets
  • We have tailored Company articles and mutual constitutions to include protections such as an asset lock or golden share
  • We have advised Clubs and Supporters Groups on different ways to raise finance including community shares and ‘developer led’ opportunities to maximise a site for the benefit of the Club
  • We have produced a research paper with Substance analysing how different football clubs assets are protected called Grounds for Benefit: Protecting Community Benefit in Football Stadia
  • We were a consultee to the Department of Communities and Local Government on the Localism Act
  • We have produced a paper in partnership with Locality called ‘Community Right to Bid’, tailored to¬†opportunities¬†for supporter communities
  • We have advised several sports organisations on how to designate and protect their sports stadia as an asset of community value
