Platini Backs Football League Financial Plans
Monday, 13th Jun 2011 17:00
UEFA president Michel Platini has backed the Football League’s move to adopt UEFA’s Financial Fair Play framework at last week’s summer conference. Chief executive Simon Clegg represented the Blues at the conference, which was held in Cyprus.
Football League clubs agreed to develop measures which will lead to a ‘break-even model’, meeting the objectives of UEFA’s framework.
League Two clubs already operate what’s called the Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP) which limits player wages to 60% of turnover, which they will reduce to 55%, while League One clubs will also adopt the SCMP.
Championship sides have opted to move towards the introduction of “new regulations to be developed and approved” by the beginning of the 2012/13 season.
Platini welcomed the developments: "We are very happy to see that Football League clubs, under the umbrella of The FA, are again taking the initiative on good governance issues by introducing Financial Fair Play.
"We are delighted that enlightened football bodies across the continent are trying to restore financial sanity to football on a national level, just as we are trying to do on a European level."
Town’s accounts to June 2010 showed player and coaching costs of £13.45 million, which was 85.3% of turnover. Overall staffing costs were 108.1% of turnover.

Crunch Time - Next Two Games Likely to Decide our Fate by Pickersblue22
This is undoubtedly the most exciting time to be an Ipswich Town supporter in a decade. For the first time since the days of Joe Royle, we have a chance of promotion, possibly automatic. Being sat in sixth place with seven games left, the task is in our own hands.
Promotion Push by akjlitfc
As we reach the final eight games of the season, the slump in form that we hoped would be brief has become persistent, warranting questioning from fans and pundits alike.
Nine Games to Seal Our Fate by AwayDays
After our recent run of poor form, I'd like to take a look at our last remaining fixtures and analyse/predict the outcomes of those important games.
Pessimistic Portman Road by akjlitfc
Being born in 1999, and with my first game at Portman Road coming at the age of six, I have skipped the Town's most recent stint in top flight football a mere 13 seasons ago. This, as is expected, suggests that I have never seen glory in my time as a football fan.
Ten Games, Ten Honest Questions by JollyJourno
There's ten games of the season remaining. Town are one point off the play-off places and five off the top of the league. But we've only won one of our last five games, and something's not right. Time to ask some honest questions of this team, before it's too late.
