Transparency in 2020/2021

Transparency is the extent to which information is ‘complete and ‘findable’’, and ‘the degree to which it is disaggregated, verified and simplified’ (G. Michenera and K. Bersch, Brazilian School of Public & Business Administration, Brazil)

  • AFC Wimbledon were the highest scoring in with 60 points
  • 30% of the clubs scores zero for Transparency, which may reflect the difficulty of Covid in holding meetings, but also highlights a continuation of lack of transparency within the professional game
  • Southampton were the highest Premier League scorers with evidence of meetings with wider fans groups and records of Fans Forums
  • With the end of Covid, this is an area we would expect to see the greatest improvement in for 2021/2022
