Abstract

There is academic research about Living Wage policy and practice (Prowse and Fells, 2015; Linneker and Wills, 2016). But, there is no research on Living Wages in the context of football, specifically regarding UK Premier League and Football League clubs. Our research raises corporate governance issues relating to the fact that only three English Premier League football clubs pay their low-paid staff a Real Living Wage, despite the current wealth bonanza.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
