Abstract

The aim of this research was to identify if English Premier League Clubs’ behaviour
in the transfer market has altered since the introduction of the Financial Fair Play Act
in 2009, with a comparative study given on three English Football Teams, and an indepth
review on Chelsea FC.
The primary data was collected through the use of online questionnaires and face-toface
interviews, both to Chelsea FC fans.
The findings of the research found that the Financial Fair Play Act has affected
English Premier League Clubs since it was introduced in 2009, with Manchester City
being the first club to breach the regulations.
The research also indicated that Chelsea FC fans share a varied opinion in regards
to the affect the Financial Fair Play regulations have on Chelsea FC as a club.
Lastly, it was found that Chelsea FC fans feel the Financial Fair Play regulations do
not have a direct affect with on field success, but it has affected their transfer market
approach since 2009.
