Abstract

The paper investigates the subject of football facility and equipment management to present the key success factors and planning elements for consideration. The work is based on secondary data analysis and literature review, and the findings include both descriptive and prescriptive elements. The findings construct a theoretical basis for further development and provide football managers with explicit and practical advice on the subject. They further indicate that topics pertaining to football facility and equipment management are not and should not be viewed as independent tasks under a common umbrella. They are all part of a larger system with all aspects interrelated both at the planning and the operation stages. Moreover, they are found to be inextricably linked with the wider strategic and marketing processes; and constitute a significant part of the value proposition of the club to its immediate customers, implicit customers, industry associates and wider society.
