Time for Greater Social and Community Reporting?
Last week saw the sixth annual RESPONSIBALL league rankings table released. The annual table, which represents the social responsibility scores of the top division clubs across several top level football leagues, saw the Scottish league coming a respectable 7th in the Rankings.
In this day and age transparency across football financial data is hardly ever hidden. Scratching beneath the surface of balance sheets often sees either a shocking or surprising story in terms of the British £. Where debate conflicts, the annual financial report more often than not tells a factual tale of where clubs are on a financial footing.
