Gender Pay Gap Reporting

April 2019.

All companies with more than 250 employees are required by Government regulations, now in their second year, to publish specific figures about gender pay gaps for the specific month of April 2018 as a snapshot period for consideration.

In April 2018 Luton Town Football Club paid a total of 435 employees.

Of these 435 employees 298 were men and 137 were women – these totals equate to 68.5% and 31.5% of the workforce respectively.

The figures all companies are obliged, by the Government, to publish are:

  • Mean Gender Pay Gap
  • Median Gender Pay Gap
  • Mean Bonus Gender Pay Gap
  • Median Bonus Gender Pay Gap
  • Proportion of Men and Women receiving a bonus
  • Proportion of Men and Women in each quartile band

As a professional football club Luton Town employed 29 professional footballers in April 2018 – these roles obviously cannot be undertaken by women and therefore some of the figures required by the Government are distorted due to this fact. There are also several other roles within the professional coaching staff set-up that are most likely to be held by a man, but we have chosen not to exclude them as we have with the professional players in the secondary (red) figures shown below.

Luton Town’s figures for each of the requirements above are listed below with the figures in red being the comparative figures if professional footballers only are taken out of the equation:

Mean Gender Pay Gap 36.2% 17.9%
Median Gender Pay Gap 5.6% 0%
Mean Bonus Gender Pay Gap 100% 100%

(NB: only players and professional coaching staff received bonuses in April 2018)

Median Bonus Gender Pay Gap 0% 0% 
Proportion of Men and Women receiving a bonus 9.7%/0% 2.6% / 0%
Proportion of Men and Women in each quartile band    
Upper Quartile 89%/11% 83.2% / 16.8%
Upper Middle Quartile 61.5%/38.5% 62.7%  / 37.3%
Lower Middle Quartile 63.9%/36.1% 61.4% / 38.6%
Lower Quartile  59.6%/40.4% 58.8% / 41.2%

Luton Town Football Club continues to recognise the importance of women in the workplace and, during the tenure of LTFC 2020 Ltd, the number of women employed has continued to increase year on year. With more and more women seeking roles within the football industry it is certain that more women, across all levels within the club’s existing structure, will be employed in the future.
