Liverpool announced a club-record revenue of £594 million for the 2021-22 season, although profit before tax was only £7.5 million.
After winning the EFL Cup in February, the Reds were on pace to achieve an unprecedented quadruple until the final few weeks of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s team won a domestic cup double with their FA Cup victory. Yet Real Madrid and Manchester City shatter their ambitions of winning the Champions League and the Premier League.
Yet, with supporters returning to Anfield following the COVID-19 outbreak and Liverpool coming agonizingly near to a treble, the Reds’ income increased by £107 million to a record level.
After the completion of behind-closed-doors fixtures, matchday revenue of Liverpool increased to £86 million, an increase of £83 million from the 2020-21 season, while commercial revenue increased by £29 million to £247 million, owing to eight new agreements.
The reopening of stadium tours, retail outlets, and the museum center also contributed to an increase in commercial revenue. Nevertheless, media income fell by £5 million to £261 million as a result of games in the 2019–20 postponed season getting put until the end of the prior reporting month.
In response to the Reds’ financial figures, Andy Hughes states Liverpoolfc.com that “some of the numbers in these most recent reports are severely overripe as a result of the global pandemic impacting the preceding reporting period.” But, the fundamental soundness of our financial situation remains robust, and we continue to manage a financially viable club, which is our primary goal.
Our men’s team playing the maximum 63 games in this reported season is a tremendous accomplishment, and we will continue to seek for additional championships.
Liverpool: Season 2021/22
The promotion of our women’s team to the WSL, which is exactly where they deserve to be, was a victory for us.
“The expense of maintaining a football team is increasing. Nonetheless, we are faithful to grow the club via significant investment, which includes the creation of the new Anfield Road Stand, which will debut in the summer, as well as the hiring of fresh and veteran players. During the previous five years, we have invested more than £250 million in infrastructure and built world-class facilities for our players, staff, and fans.
“What matters now is that we finish this season as strongly as possible, both on and off the field, while we continue to manage expenses and investigate areas for development in our commercial activities so that we can continue to reinvest revenues in players and infrastructure.”
Liverpool’s EFL Cup and FA Cup defenses have already ended this season, and they are on the verge of a last-16 Champions League departure to Real Madrid after a 5-2 loss in the first leg last week.
Klopp’s team is seventh in the Premier League and will play Wolverhampton Wanderers at home on Wednesday evening.
