Summary

Turnover fell by 2%, from £178.5m to £176.4m.

Media income fell £2.5m, being the net of a lower merit award based on league position, offset against one additional live TV game (19 vs 18) and an increase in international broadcasting income.

Match income increased £0.9m (4%) from £23.9m to £24.8m as season ticket and Premier League matchday attendances averaged over 51,000 for the third successive season.

Commercial income fell £0.5m (2%) from £26.7m to £26.2m, impacted by the success, in the prior year, of the three Ed Sheeran concerts.

Operating expenses increased £3.3m (3%) from £119.6m to £122.9m, due almost entirely to an increase in wages and salaries, which accounted for £3.2m of the increase.

At £96.8m the wages to turnover ratio of 54.9% remains under the target 60%, although slightly up from last year (£93.6m, ratio 52.4%)

Excluding amounts released in respect of prior year onerous contract provisions, the 2019 year figures are £100.9m (2018: £103.4m) and 57.2% (2018: 57.9%).

Player amortisation and trading

Amortisation and impairment of players’ registrations fell to £38.6m (2018: £41.3m).

Profit on disposal of players’ registrations increased to £24.6m (2018:£3.6m).
