The full report (which is worth reading) can be accessed here but below is a summary of City's key numbers:
- City are up five places to seventh and it marks the first time they have cracked the top ten.
- Their annual revenue was £285.6m, a 51% growth year on year and the highest of all clubs on the list.
- This was broken down as follows: £138.5 commercial, £109 broadcasting and £38.1 matchday, the latter trailing in comparison to the other top six and despite the £4.2m increase (16%) is the likely reason the club are so seriously looking at stadium expansion.
- The matchday revenue of 13% compares far less favourably against Premier League rivals Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea. Notably, City's match day revenue was a third of Arsenal's, yet their commercial revenue was double (and before the new Nike deal is taken into account).
