As I work today, I've got BT Sport open in a window on one of my screens. It's showing my local team: Norwich City playing Sunderland.
It is important that Norwich win to help their chances of avoiding relegation. There are many financial benefits of remaining in the Premiership of course, and not just for the club themselves, but also for the city of Norwich.
Ernst and Young published a very useful report in 2015 showing the benefits of the Premiership. It would make a useful document for investigating various factors which influence the fortunes of a city. Football contributes to placemaking.
Read the report and download it from here.
On the ball city!
