A number of Irish-based football investment funds gained revenue of more that €6 million from the transfer of players during 2013.

According to accounts just filed for Quality Football Ireland, the firm received €2.2 million from the transfer of players in August 2013.

Another related fund, Burnaby Investments, is due to receive €4.75 million from a club after the rescindment of its holding of the economic rights to a player in 2013.
