4 things you may have missed in the Deloitte report

The £4billion revenue figure is grabbing all the headlines, but The Wharf has taken a look at some of the other stories in the Deloitte annual review of football finance.

1. Matchday rip-off?

Fans going to Premier League matches get a bit of a raw deal when it comes to the cost of going to games. Top flight clubs earned around £43 from each match-going fan over the course of 2014-15 on average.

That’s more than clubs from the other big five leagues - France, Germany, Italy and Spain - earned from their match attendees.

France earned the least (£15) followed by Italy (£19), Germany (£30) and Spain (£34).

2. Things will only get better – for accountants

Deloitte’s predictions for the Premier League’s revenues growing ever further. This season top flight clubs made £3.3billion in revenue. By the end of the 2016-17 season that’s expected to shoot up to €5.8billion, or £4.5billion at today’s exchange rates.

3. TV is king

Three seasons ago only 47% (£1.2billion) of Premier League clubs’ revenues came from broadcasting. Almost a quarter (£585million) came from matchdays.

Last season, however, 53% of revenue came from broadcasting (£1.78billion) and just 18% from matchdays (£584million).

By 2016-17 it’s expected that as much as 60% (2.59billion) of revenue will come from broadcasting while just 14% (610million) will come from matchdays.

4. Over £1bn comes in from abroad

The Premier League international media rights will bring in £1.1billion a season between 2016-17 and 2018-19. That’s £3.3billion in total. Just under a third of that, 31%, comes from Europe. The same percentage also comes from Asia.

As much as 10% comes from Sub-Saharan Africa, another 10% from North America, 9% from the Middles East and North Africa, 6% from Latin America and 3% from Australasia.
