RESPONSIBALL Ranking 2017
Welcome to the seventh annual RESPONSIBALL Ranking. This report details our research into the commitment of top-level football clubs to social responsibility through the 2016-2017 season.
This assessment of football clubs’ commitment to social responsibility has been evaluated through the clubs’ transparent communication of initiatives across three main pillars: Governance, Community, and Environment.
Building off of the 2016 Ranking, we have added seven leagues to this year’s research, with a total of 25 leagues spanning five continents. While the majority of these leagues are in Europe, both South America and Asia entered the Ranking this year with the inclusion of the Brazilian Série A (a re-entry from 2015) , the Japanese J-League, and the Indian Super League.
The ultimate purpose of the Ranking is to raise awareness and demonstrate the level of social responsibility in elite level professional football.
