The presentation deal with the first results of a research that has for object the qualitative and quantitative analysis of related party transactions of some Italian professional football clubs. In qualitative terms, we investigate on the exhaustiveness of the information, and on its contribution to the transparency and the substantial accuracy of the financial statements of clubs. In quantitative terms, we analyze the financial statements of the clubs and the impact of related party transactions on their economic and financial situations, with useful simulations for verifying the possible gap compared to the parameters of financial fair play. As expected results, the paper aims to highlight the "weight" of related party transactions in the professional clubs, the quality of their representation in the financial statements and the impact on economic and financial performance.
