Mahoney compensation package finalised


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

A Professional Football Compensation Committee (PFCC), appointed under EFL and Premier League regulations, has ruled that AFC Bournemouth will pay Blackburn Rovers a compensation fee for Connor Mahoney.

The matter was referred to a tribunal following Mahoney's transfer last summer.

The Committee met on Wednesday 2nd May and decided the following.

- AFC Bournemouth must pay Blackburn Rovers an initial compensation fee of £425,000.

- In addition to the initial payment, AFC Bournemouth are to pay a further sum of £100,000 on the player making 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 first team appearances - a potential further payment of £500,000.

- The potential for international appearances has also been factored, with AFC Bournemouth expected to pay £250,000 in the event that Connor Mahoney makes a full senior appearance for England.

- Finally, Blackburn Rovers will receive 20% of any profit made by AFC Bournemouth in selling the player to another club at any point in the future.

In setting these compensation fees, the PFCC takes into account the costs of developing the player, his age and playing record, the length of time he has been registered with his former club, the terms offered by both clubs, the status of the two clubs and the interest shown by other clubs in acquiring the registration of a player.

In accordance with the rules of the EFL, and in agreement with the Premier League and The Professional Footballers’ Association, the PFCC is responsible for setting the compensation fee for players Under 24 where the club formerly holding his registration and the club next holding his registration fail to reach an agreement regarding compensation for training and development.

The PFCC comprises of an independent Chairman, and an appointee from the EFL, the Premier League, The Professional Footballers’ Association and the League Managers’ Association.
