The German weekly newspaper ‘Die Zeit’ published an online calculator and infographic generator that shows the management efficiency of various football clubs. For example, it calculates how much a goal in the Premier League costs or how much a single successful pass is worth by taking the club’s spending budget into account.

The online calculator gives all stakeholders a simple and transparent overview on how well clubs manage their money. Nonprofit and and non-governmental organisations have been used to this type of scrutiny, but could such a tool make your brand more accountable and ultimately raise trust with your customers?
