PARTNERSHIP

AND INVESTOR
PRESENTATION
SUMMARY

B.93 is a Danish football and tennis club founded in 1893. It


is placed in the center of Copenhagen and with 1,500 football
players and 1,300 tennis players, it is one of the largest football
and tennis clubs in Denmark.

The club is looking for main partners and/or investors to


participate and contribute in a significant turn-around of the
club with sharp focus on the development of its many youth
members in a socially responsible, gender equal and secure
environment. The vision is to re-create itself as a first class
club which unites amateurs and professionals, girls and boys
and youth and senior players all working as one combined
entity to their mutual benefit.

We believe that the club exists for the players and that the
success of the club and its partners is created through the
success of the players.

FINANCIAL STRATEGY
The intention is to reach a level where there is a zero result in
the club generally, including the professional setup around the
women’s and men’s first team and the academy. Cost of staff,
coaches and players shall at all times be at a level that can be
sustained from the ordinary sources of income. Investments in
infrastructure or other improvements, investments in players
or coaches outside the income generated from ordinary
operations will only be made if there are free reserves to do so.

We will at all times base our operations and budget on known


income streams and will when budgeting not take into account
extraordinary income. The zero result shall thus be obtained
without calculating any extraordinary income from sale of
players or any other transfer fees.
