Goals Soccer Centre hires Deloitte to find new owner

Five-a-side football operator Goals Soccer Centre has hired ‘Big Four’ firm Deloitte to find a new owner, following an “accountancy scandal” earlier this year. 

In a statement, Goals Soccer Centre, said: “There is no certainty as to the timetable or outcome of this process. Shareholders will continue to be kept informed of developments as appropriate.”

Earlier this month, the company confirmed £12m in misdeclared VAT, which had been caused by “improper behaviour” by individuals at the company dating as far back as 2010. The company announced an investigation into former CFO Bill Rogers, and its founder and former CEO Keith Gow on 12 August. 

Following the findings, the company, which is part owned by Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley, suspended trading its shares on AIM earlier this year.
