Offseason developments: With long term deals in place for all of their key categories, the 2019/20 season as a quiet one commercially for Arsenal. Another disappointing league season was salvaged slightly by winning the FA Cup and ensuring European participation but not qualifying for the Uefa Champions League will impact the club’s finances given the wages being paid out.

Offseason developments: A move away from partnerships with Midnight Gaming brands W88 and BR88 has been the main story of Villa’s commercial activity during the shortened off-season.
