Manchester United on track for record financial results

Manchester United are on track to become the first British club to earn more than £500m in one year despite their lack of success on the pitch.

Second-quarter revenues rose by 26.6% to a record £133.8m, with commercial revenues up 42.5% to £66.1m.

Broadcast revenue rose 31.3% to £37.3m and sponsorship revenue rose by £1.6m, but matchday income was down 1.6%.

“Our solid results off the pitch help contribute to what remains our number one priority – success on the pitch,” said executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
