An interesting conversation on Twitter this afternoon with Andrew Ward (@ARWardMadrid) prompted me to think about whether Manchester City FC might be considered to have received State Aid.
Our conversation was prompted by media reports that a number of European football clubs are being investigated by the EU Commission under the State Aid rules. Andrew’s interest was no doubt spurred by the inclusion of Real Madrid among those being investigated in relation to a parcel of land sold to them by local government. Could City’s relationship with Manchester City Council also lead to similar concerns?
