Measuring the Impact of Clubs in the Community

Argyle Community Trust has received a study by the EFL Trust as part of their study to measure the impact of clubs in the community throughout 2019.

The EFL commissioned specialist sport and leisure management consultants to survey all Clubs and Club Community Organisations (CCOs) on work carried out in the community, creating a report that details the national landscape as well as each CCO’s individual regions.

The resulting national report contains a number of key findings including the fact that nearly 900,000 people took part in a wide range of activities and more than 500,000 hours of group activity were delivered by EFL Clubs during the 2018/19 season.

The Argyle Community Trust specific report gives an insight to demographic profiles relating to the catchment area compared with the national picture, resource levels across funding, income and staffing plus a comprehensive analysis of delivery across a range of community projects.

The Trust delivered more than 13,000 hours of engagement to more than 56,000 people, spread over 152 different programmes.

Plymouth Argyle Football Club Chairman, Simon Hallett said:  “That really is remarkable, well above EFL averages, and a reminder that a football club, is just that – a club, not a football team alone.”
