"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

AEK was founded in 1924 by Greek refugees from Constantinople (now Istanbul) in the wake of the Greco-Turkish War. The full name is Athlitiki Enosis Konstantinoupoleos (Athletic Union of Constantinople). Honours include winning 11 national Championships and 13 Greek Cups. Home matches are played at the Olympic Stadium in Athens (Capacity: 71,030 all-seated), however a 2007 Memorandum of Cooperation has been signed between the Ministry of Finance and Economy and the club that outlines plans for a new stadium development at Ano Liosia. The Greek Government promises to provide public land and access infrastructure, while the club will deal with the financing of the project.

Turnover and pre-tax profit figures are in Euro millions.
