West Ham leap frogs Everton

crestWest Ham has leap frogged Everton in terms of turn-over to become the club with the seventh largest turn over. Historically the clubs with the largest turn over and wage-bills consistently finish the season relative to the amount they have spent.

Last year West Ham sat in ninth position in the Premier League’s turn-over table on £121m behind Newcastle (7th £129m) and Everton (8th £126m).

West Ham has seen a 17.7% increase to a turn-over of £142m in their last season at the Boleyn Ground while Everton saw a £4m decrease in turn-over to £121.5m in the same period. Newcastle have yet to announce their figures but were relegated to the championship with the obvious financial consequences.

West Ham out performed Everton in every area of finances last season.

Everton earned £82.5m from TV money, £17.6m from ticket sales, £9.3m from retail and £12m from commercial activities.

West Ham’s TV income grew to £86.7m, ticket sales grew to £26.9m, commercial and sponsorship sales were up by 31% to £19m while retail and merchandising sales grew by 29% to  match Everton on £9.3m.

However, the Hammers remain a long way behind the top six in terms of turn-over. Manchester United leads the pack with £515.3m followed by Manchester City on £392m, Arsenal are third on £350m and Chelsea forth on £329m.

Liverpool and Spurs have yet to announce their figures but Liverpool recorded figures of £298m in 2015 while Spurs had  a £196m turnover in 2015 so we are unlikely to catch them up any time soon.

  1. Further proof if it’s needed that Gold Sullivan and Brady are doing a good job for us. Steadily building us up. I see no reason why Spurs can’t be caught as they will enormous debts to contend with. The haters must be hating this news. Next years figures will reflect the new season at Stratford. Nice one Sean. Thanks for these updates.
