Arsenal FA Cup Win Gives Gunners £100m Boost For 2014

Posted by

Gunners break £100m mark in 2014 match-day revenue.

Arsenal brought in £100m from match days last year, owing to their run in the FA Cup that saw them win the competition after four home draws on their way to the semi-finals and final.

However, according to the Daily Express, it is not all good news for the Gunners, who are looking slightly worse off financially than a few years ago.

Rivals Chelsea have pulled away from the north London giants, who bring in £23.9m more in revenue every year. Manchester United have also seen their financial results improve massively, despite a desperately poor season under David Moyes last season that resulted in a loss of Champions League football.

Still, Arsenal will feel they are heading in the right direction and have enjoyed being able to spend more in the transfer market, bringing in big names such as Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in recent times.

Arsenal also have the best social media following, narrowly ahead of Chelsea with 5.2m Twitter followers to the Blues’ 5m.
