There is profit in football beyond medals and trophies – Barr. Churchill Oliseh

The President, Ebedei Football Club, Barrister Churchill Oliseh has affirmed that football club owners and managers should learn the business part of the game as their primary focus rather than just winning trophies alone.

This was part of the discussion held when the Ekiti State FA Chairman, Mr. Bayo Olanlege led some private club owners and managers within the Ekiti football ecosystem on a working visit to the FC Ebedei Stadium, Shagamu, Ogun state.

The astute football business guru stressed that if administered the right way, there is money to be made in football, hence, club owners and managers must always work towards making profit all the time and not just be in the business for charity.

“Football is not charity, clubs owners need to make proper preparations and seek knowledge.

“The results you get are not by accident, they are by concerted efforts and that is why you must think beyond just winning medals and trophies, money making must be part of your plans as you run your football club at any level”, Oliseh stated.

Oliseh further noted that learning should be a continuous process if anyone will make headway in football business as the game keeps evolving each day.

“To make profit from your investments in football, you need to seek right definition of the game by capacity building and networking with the right persons.

“The definition of football varies, however what you think of football does not matter, but what the market says should be your ideal”.
