Arsenal's revenue streams were boosted in 2022-23 - and are set to be uplifted again given the Champions League windfall

Financial specialist Kieran Maguire believes Arsenal’s “impressive” balance sheet is about to improve further in the coming years.

The Gunners announced £465million revenue in their annual accounts last month - an increase of around £95million. These figures are from the 2022-23 campaign when Arsenal finished second in the Premier League.

A £52million loss overall was attributed to transfer fees but boosting matchday income by £100million was a huge bonus. When the next round of data is released, the Gunners will also be enhanced by Champions League prize money.

Arsenal still trail the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United are Liverpool but their influence is growing given the recent upturn in fortunes under Mikel Arteta. Better still, football money expert Maguire has predicted those numbers to only go in one direction.

“If we take a look at these figures through the lens of revenue then it is good news for Arsenal,” he told Football Insider. “It’s especially impressive as it was done in a year without Champions League football.

“So therefore they do have opportunities for significant growth by competing in Europe this season and under the new Swiss model next year. Manchester City’s revenue was above £700million, Manchester United’s was well above £600million and Liverpool just under £600million.

“So they’re still behind but they have the benefits of being in London with a big stadium. The infrastructure is there to take this further.”
