AFC Bournemouth

Formed in 1890, this Premier League football club has played its home fixtures at Dean Court stadium since 1910. Its nickname, the Cherries, comes from the cherry orchards that once surrounded the ground. Under the stewardship of Eddie Howe — the youngest manager in the top four divisions of English football when he was first appointed in 2009 — the club achieved promotion to the top flight in 2015. Turnover hit £136.5m last year under chief executive Neill Blake, 39, thanks to increases in broadcasting rights fees and sponsorship revenues.
