The Business Behind Sport: Simon Hallett, Majority Owner and Chairman of Plymouth Argyle F.C.

In this episode, Jonny Gray talks to Simon Hallett, majority owner and Chairman of Plymouth Argyle Football Club who was recently promoted into The Championship League. Simon openly discusses everything around owning an English Football League Club and how he and his team managed to take Plymouth Argyle from being a loss-making League 2 (4th Tier) team to one of the most well-run clubs by challenging the "football way" of ownership at every turn.

He also speaks about lessons he’s learned along the way, and what follows is a masterclass for existing and future investors in English Football and how they can create a beneficial club for the fans, sponsors, and community stakeholders.
