League One Brentford revealed that Owner Matthew Benham has invested £15.2M ($24M) in the club since taking over in June, according to Giuseppe Muro of the London EVENING STANDARD. That figure "does not include the money he spent to purchase the land located at Lionel Road South," where Brentford plans to build a new 15,000-20,000 seat stadium for the start of the '16-17 season. Brentford reported a £5M ($7.9M) loss, and its wage bill has increased by 20% from the previous year and is now more than £5M. Brentford is "expected to make" £1M ($1.6M) from its FA Cup run (EVENING STANDARD, 1/30).
German Hockey League (DEL) club Iserlohn Roosters have decided to invest in their fan base and drastically reduce the prices for standing-room season tickets. Club Managing Dir Wolfgang Brück said, "The most-valued capital of our Iserlohn Roosters is its fans, which are connected to our club in different ways. To welcome them even more regularly at the Seilersee (the street on which the club's arena is located) is what we made our duty." Standing-room season tickets will cost between €29-€49 ($39-$66), cheaper than previously (Iserlohn Roosters).
