The 11 Years Of Newcastle Revenues Under Mike Ashley – And More Recent Financial Figures


We’ve managed to put together the revenues (turnover) of every season that Mike Ashley has been the owner of Newcastle.

The revenues plummeted in 2009-2010 when we were first relegated from the Premier League.

They plummeted again in 2016-2017 when we were relegated for a second time.

The revenues increased significantly in the years 2013-2016 with a new, improved Premier League rights agreement that began in 2013.

And in our last fiscal year reported the revenues have gone up again due to another new, improved Premier League TV rights deal which started in 2016.

The revenue of £178.5M is the highest ever for Newcastle and is for the fiscal year through last June 30th.

Here are the revenues and we have made a note of some other interesting facts and figures form the report.

  • Revenues were £178.5M – the highest ever
  • Profits were £18.6M – that’s 10.4% of revenues – very decent
  • The wage bill was £93.6M – the 14th highest in the Premier League – that’s dropped from the previous year
  • Wages/Revenue ratio is currently 52.4% – down from 130.9% due to our very low Championship revenues last year – under 60% is the goal
  • Lee Charnley’s wages have doubled – now £300M from £150K in the previous year – that’s still low for Chief Executives at Premier League clubs
  • Mike Ashley was paid back his short-term loans – £43M in total – the club now owes him £111M in long-term loans
  • Since he paid around £145M for the club back in 2007 – his total investment in Newcastle United is now around £256M.
  • That means at £300M he’s looking for around a £44M profit in selling the club
  • An agreement has been put in place under which Newcastle will receive payment from Sports Direct for the advertising in the stadium.
  • Commercial revenues increased from £14.6M to £26.7M, but that’s lower than in 2015-16
  • It’s extremely low compared to what other PL clubs generate and an area where Newcastle can earn a lot more revenue

    Ed,

    I don’t like to disagree with you (and I never have in the past) – but some of your ‘facts’ are not correct

    your all missing one very important link in the nufc chain of command
    Lee Charnley
    JUSTIN BARNES
    Ashley

    Charnley has to run everything past Barnes before it gets anywhere near Ashley

    “Lee Charnley’s wages have doubled – now £300M from £150K in the previous year – ” – Now that’s what I call a pay rise!! Lol

    Hopefully this increased revenue means Ashley will offer Rafa more transfer money. There’s always hope (somehow).

    toon22,
    When I seen how much Ashley had paid for Evan’s cycles and got all their stock, I had a feeling his idea for HoF was to acquire maybe £350M worth of stock for his 90M and flog it in the most profitable shops until they closed down one by one, if he oversees the demise of HoF for his personal greed then his high street hero mask is going to very publicly fall off and he’ll be up there with Phil Green as one of the most hated tycoons in the UK.

    Rackhams in Altrincham, part of the HoF empire, has served Ashley a notice to leave the premises and said others could now follow suit.
    Another mess follows Ashley around and you think he has Nufc best interest at heart and he’s gonna change tact…Haha don’t kid yourself guys.
    20 mill for Almiron is chump change for what the club makes

    Yup, Charley’s no more MD than me. He’s MD in name only, Ashley’s messenger and will probably have little authority. Justin Barnes is Ashley’s protector and bully boy who’ll make sure anything Charnley wants of Ashley is routed through him.

    If Rafa is frustrated with Charnley, it’s no surprise.

    Those questioning or wondering why Charnley received £300k obviously haven’t tried his cups of tea.

    That and the fact he’s always got an emergency pack of custard creams at the ready.

    I think we’re all underestimating Churnley and he’s a driving force behind the insane and illogical way we’re being run.

    Jail,

    Sorry…..I don’t understand – you’ve always said that Ashley decides everything?
    (Therefore anything that charnley thinks or does is irrelevant)

    sorry Jail but that’s Barnes your describing Charnley is nothing more than a figure head office manager with no power what so ever, everything has to go through Barnes,

    Could be that both Leeds and Sheffield Utd (along with Norwich) could make it back to the Premier League, replacing Huddersfield and the more remote outposts of Fulham and Cardiff or Brighton.
    That’s could make for a more robust competitive set of nearly derby games for all northern clubs, just like days of yore. Brass bands at half time and pies all round. Better for the away fans and tougher journeys for southern fans, oh dear how sad. Looking forward to next season already.

    Mr Justice Arnold said Sports Direct managers were justifiably criticised by lawyers representing a financial watchdog which wanted documents staff thought would help in an investigation into the conduct of an auditing firm.

    Lawyers representing the Financial Reporting Council had “characterised” Sports Direct’s approach as “one of obfuscation and delay verging on obstruction”, and Mr Justice Arnold said that criticism is “entirely justified”.

    The judge has now ordered Sports Direct to produce a number of documents wanted by the Financial Reporting Council.

    Take no heed to Hibbit and his pony and trap comment. What he doesn’t realise is that you are doing your bit for the planet and we each do it in our own sweet way.

    Speaking of sweet, as if Ashley’s antics and greed weren’t enough, I wonder how much Methane he contributes to the earth’s atmosphere.
