Stakeholders Stakeholders are individuals or groups who have an interest in what a business does and either is affected by what the business does or affects the business by what they do. The stakeholders of Manchester United Football Club are the footballers, the supporters, the shareholders, and suppliers of hotels, ground and kits etc, and the employees of the hotels. The footballers affect the business as if they do not win their games - if they are not successful, crowds will drop, not as many people will want to purchase merchandise, the share value of the business will decrease resulting in the footballers not being able to command such high salaries. The supporters of the football team affect Man U in the way they cheer the players on as the footballers performance usually improve with the amount of support given.

The second most powerful stakeholders are the fans, as without them supporting the team i.e. buying tickets the club would not have the money to find its other business activities. With Man u due to the fact that the players are the most powerful stakeholders and are collectively responsible for the success of the club makes it totally different to Spencer Hair Company as this is entirely dependent on its owner Garry Spencer who directly affects each aspect of the business i.e. marketing, training, customer service, ordering of product and expansion of new salons. ...read more.
