Is the UK’s Premier League recession-proof?

The new television rights deal sent Premier League clubs’ revenue soaring to £1.932 billion ($3.08 billion) in 2007/08 and revenues are estimated to have reached £2 billion ($3.19 billion) in 2008/09 according to the latest Annual Review of Football Finance from the Sport Business Group at Deloitte.  In a sign of football’s resilience to the economic downturn, Deloitte expects England’s top clubs will continue to grow revenues in 2009/10, albeit at a slower pace.
