Lord Sugar Tackles Football

Lord Sugar investigates the business side of the beautiful game. Despite generating billions in TV and other income, the professional English game is struggling to make ends meet.

Lord Sugar, one of the country's leading entrepreneurs and a football fan, investigates the business side of the beautiful game. Despite generating billions in TV and other income, the professional English game is struggling to make ends meet. Most Premier League clubs are in the red, and debt stands at 3.3 billion pounds.

Lord Sugar interviews bosses, owners, agents and players and asks what has gone wrong, who is to blame and what can be done. In typically forthright fashion, he delivers his verdict and his own business blueprint designed to help the game he has followed since childhood.
