Liverpool financial accounts 2022

Overall revenue

Liverpool's total revenue rose by £107m to £594m - an increase of 22% with pre-tax profits of £7.5m. Only Real Madrid (£605m) and Manchester City (£619m) generated more profit globally. - but the figures underscore the importance of the Champions League. The club released its latest financial accounts for the period to May 2022 yesterday morning, revealing that almost 45% of its revenue comes from television, which was helped by their run to the Champions League final last season. Liverpool will also receive around £100m in UEFA bonuses, raising concerns about how much damage it could cause if they fail to qualify for next season's Champions League. Liverpool is currently seventh in the Premier League table, nine points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Matchday revenue

Matchday revenue has risen by £83m to £86m as Anfield returns to full capacity following the pandemic, which was further expanded with the construction of a new stand. That makes Liverpool third in top-flight matchday revenue behind Tottenham (£106m) and Manchester City (£107m).

Commercial revenue

Commercial revenue rose by £29 to £247m. A total of eight new partnerships were signed during this period, including Sonos, Kodansha, Vistaprint and Wasabi. Football sim partner EA SPORTS has renewed its partnership.

The retail sector also saw another record-breaking jersey sale during the period, with the partnership with Nike bringing further global distribution opportunities. E-commerce has also grown with mobile transactions growing by more than 60%, and LFC products are shipped to more than 190 countries. Liverpool ranks third in commercial revenue behind Manchester United (262 million) and Manchester City (316 million).

Media revenue

Media revenue fell by £5m to £261m. However, that figure is still higher than any of their domestic rivals. The slight drop was due to the previous year's figures being inflated by Premier League payouts, as the final nine games of the 2019/20 season were extended by the pandemic, which fell in this accounting period.

Administrative costs

Football costs continued to rise during the period, with administrative costs rising by £69m to £545m, driven by increases in wage costs and matchday administration. Anfield's annual operating costs have increased by almost 40% over the past five years.
