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.
