    Abstract

    This paper identifies five types of insolvency in English
    football: clubs that have failed to cope with relegation;
    failed to pay monies due to the UK government; seen
    ‘soft debts’ become ‘hard debts’; lost the ownership of
    their stadium; or have been ‘repeat offenders’. As the
    second of a three-phase research project, the paper
    concludes with an indication of the final phase
    research and implications of the findings so far for
    other professional sports
