Leeds United secure £14m Premier League revenue boost

We are delighted to welcome a football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as an exclusive columnist. Each week he will give his views on the main talking points at Leeds United...

Dan Plumley has insisted that Leeds United have seen a £14million increase in both commercial and total revenue over their three years in the Premier League.

The financial expert shared that in 2018 the Whites fetched just under £22m while in 2021 it hit just under £36m at Elland Road.

Leeds have introduced Gold Tier partnerships of late, so that figure is set to rise again with another year of Premier League football.

“You can see the progression in that area since they were promoted to the Premier League,” he exclusively said WORD Leeds News.

“You look at the last four years as an example of the numbers we have: 2018 it was just under £22m in trade deals and total revenue.

“In 2021 that jumped to just under £36m so you have an increase of £14m in just under four years so you can see the incremental increase when the Premier League has started.

“They’re going in the right direction with this, and there will be some growth there for Leeds with everything they have, the deals will still be happy if you keep Premier League status, so again, the performance on the field will lead to this, there has been growth.

These revenues will only continue to increase as we continue at the top.

With Elland Road also about to start rebuilding to increase matchday capacity, this will immediately boost bi-weekly revenue.

Andrea Radrizzani will be looking with Angus Kinnear and the board members to keep those numbers up, so this will certainly be something to watch closely and even come back to at this stage next year.

The only way is to go up.

In other Leeds United news, Los Blancos now want to sign the striker with a rival set to kick off a major £30m+ transfer battle.
