January 31, 2020 is the time to close the winter transfer market of UK football, coinciding with the official time of leaving the European Union of England (Brexit).
How Brexit affects British sports development is unknown, but the last winter transfer was the second highest in history. We will help readers better visualize the current state of sports in this country at the present time.
No serious impacts
The Brexit process takes a relatively long time and has a rapid impact on the socio-economic fields. The solutions to the Brexit problem for British sports in general are not much. Professor Simon Chadwick of the Department of Sports Business at the University of Salford, Manchester said “As far as I know, no specific guidelines have been issued for sports.”
The last time a sports guide was posted on the Ministry of Digital, Culture, Media and Sports website (DCMS) was in early October 2019. Sport England, which decided to allocate government money to sports associations and projects, declined to comment.
The Sports and Entertainment Alliance estimates that the sport industry contributes about £ 37 billion a year to the economy. Government information is lower. A 2018 document shows that 581,000 people are employed in this sector, of which 21,000 (3.6%) are EU citizens.
There is a peculiarity in British sports, that the state is still partially subsidizing many sports. This is part of the “soft power” strategy and investment in grassroots life. As such, Brexit has caused the government to continue to spend money on the top playing system to increase the image of an England described as a “superpower”.
Of course, money flowing into the top will reduce investment at the amateur and school sports level. The British Government has a policy of socializing sports in schools and communities.
The most influence is not in football but belong to professional subjects that have a lower popularity than football. Horse racing is a prime example of post-Brexit vulnerability.
