Professional football organisations are curious in how they operate. In the past, such organisations would place heavy emphasis on entertainment, whereas in recent times, there has been a notable shift towards developing, signing, and trading the best players. With the dramatic increase in transfer fees, the organisations who best manage their finances are also those most likely to succeed. However, as the transfer fees increase, so do the risks. In many cases, the reward structures in place promote poor decisions. For that reason, it is essential to learn how rewards incentivise behaviour, and how we can promote the desired behaviour from football organisations whilst decreasing undesired behaviour within professional football clubs.
