Stadium developments - the benefit expected
Owning a stadium or developing a state-of-the-art venue can help football clubs maximise their matchday revenues and increase commercial income.

Most Italian clubs miss significant matchday income, also limiting their potential to invest in the squad, and negatively impacting their sporting competitiveness at international level. In a new episode of Sky Italy’s Football Benchmark series, Andrea Sartori provides context around some current stadium development trends.
