BURTON ALBION FC was the only League One Club to be nominated in the Financial Performance category at the Football Business Awards.
The Brewers lined up alongside Burnley, Chelsea, Kilmarnock, Manchester United, Sheffield United, St Mirren and Tottenham - with St Mirren being named the winners.
Now in its ninth addition, the Football Business Awards recognise and reward the off-pitch talents and endeavours that are an invaluable, part of the fabric of football and the communities the clubs serve.
Attended by over 350 leading football industry executives, the awards are considered the industry’s foremost accolade, attracting hundreds of entries every year from both the business units within football clubs and those professional services and businesses dedicated to supporting clubs and the game itself.
Simon Burton, co-founder of the Football Business Awards, said: “The last year has shown how important football is to so many people. The way in which the football clubs and the businesses that support them have risen to the challenge of the pandemic proves this is no ordinary business. It is at the heart of communities everywhere and we are honoured to celebrate these outstanding achievements and initiatives.”
Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “It has been a difficult 18 months for all businesses and football has been no exception. The pandemic has put considerable strains on the finances of football clubs, and we all have had to work hard to navigate our way through this difficult time.
“We were delighted to be nominated for this award alongside Premier League clubs like Manchester United in recognition of the efforts we have made to keep the club in good financial health.”
