Málaga, Spain – In light of the upcoming UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool and Tottenham in Madrid next Saturday June 1st, 2019, Dyntra published its newest report titled ‘The UEFA Champions League 2018-2019 Group Stage Football Clubs’ where it has analysed the Transparency of all 32 Football Clubs that participated in this seasons UEFA Champions League Group Stage using the dynamic transparency ranking Dyntra UEFA Champions League 2018-2019 Index as basis.
The goal of the index is to push the European Football Clubs in becoming more transparent. It looks at four main categories, the Institutional Transparency, Communication and Relationship with the Fans and the Public, Economic-Financial Transparency, and Contracting Services. Overall, the evaluated clubs pass the 50% mark in the category of Communication and Relationship, but are deficient in other three categories. “The only 2 clubs that pass the 50% in each of the four categories are Real Madrid and Barcelona with Juventus getting closer as they improved their transparency in the last month with more than 10 percentage points.” says Erwin de Grave, International Relations Director of Dyntra.
After the 1st round of evaluations, we can highlight the following 3 main conclusions:
- The average percentage of all 32 Football Clubs evaluated is 26,12%.
- Only 3 clubs pass the 50% mark: Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus.
- Real Madrid is the most transparent of the football clubs evaluated with a score of 77,17%, a performance well above the average.
