Sheffield utd fans highest revenue generators

Recommended Posts

It was in League one with crowds of over 20,000 so hardly surprising.

It seems we’re far and away the highest revenue source for United, ( fans that is). If I understand correctly it doesn’t say a great deal for our owners. I’m happy to be contradicted however. Stats were for our promotion season

By quite some distance, as a % of turnover. Good or bad?

I suppose good from an atmosphere & loyalty POV. Bad from a commercial POV.

Does it suggest our owners are less generous than those of other clubs?

It says owners & Utd are broke & rely on large gates for operating revenue. Utd have great fans & loyal fanbase but our commercial potential is diminished as a consequence of cheapskate ownership.

Where does it say United are broke?

Once again I point out that it was when they were in League one where outside revenue is a lot more limited than in the Championship.

Reading between the lines. We don't have a rich benefactor do we?

A better guide is average income per fan - last time i looked Utd's was quite low compared to Wednesday

Reading the article you quoted it doesn't say United are broke anywhere like you claim it does.

United are one of the richest clubs out side the Premiership they have sold youngsters for many millions ,they have large gate receipts and two of the richest men in football at the top ,,one of them being member of the Saudi Royal family and all the oil money that goes with that .
