Ray Stubbs and Mark Lawrenson were the hosts for the second annual Football Business Awards on 7th November where 480 gathered at Chelsea Football Club to find out which clubs and businesses in the football industry have been excelling off rather than on the pitch. Among the recipients of awards was Richard Scudamore who was presented an outstanding achievement award by Bruce Buck the Chairman of Chelsea. Opta picked up two awards, Chelsea, Man City and Cardiff were some of the clubs picking up silverware and and the CEO of the year was Paul Barber from Brighton.
Now in their third year year the Football Business Awards are designed to celebrate excellence and acknowledge success in the business of football. The Awards recognise the essential role that business plays in football, the positive impact of football on the community and vital role played by the businesses which serve the game.
