Project Details

IPW advised the Premier League on the development of the new standardised approach to youth transfer fees/ compensation payments, which was incorporated into the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) – the League’s long-term strategy aimed at developing more and better home-grown players.

Our work included research into, and modelling of, alternative compensation scenarios to clarify the financial implications of the proposals.

We made a series of recommendations as to how the mechanism could be structured, the level of base compensation payable and options for standardised (performance-related) add-ons, building on the initial principles set out by the League.
