Manchester United’s quarterly report breaks new record

Record breakers

For the second successive year, Manchester United have earned more than half a billion pounds.

In their latest quarterly earnings report, the Red devils announced a record-breaking revenue of £581.2m.

Despite the absence of Champions League football last season, and a sixth-placed finish, Man United’s money-making ability was at an all-time high.

Last year the club became the first British club to break the half-billion mark, with revenue of £515.3m, which has been substantially improved on this year.

Back to the top

In January, United returned to the top of the Deloitte Football Money league for the first time in over a decade, recording a record profit of £80.8m.

According to the latest report, the club are expecting to post a revenue of between £575m an £585m for the year ending June 30, 2018.

Wages at the club have increased by £31.3m to £263.5m, although the percentage of revenue that wages took up remained almost the same.
