New Manchester United figures show further cash boost

Manchester United look set for another record-breaking year off the pitch after posting a healthy 16.5% increase in first-quarter turnover to 73.8million.

United reported growth in all areas, with the commercial side benefiting from the amazing 40million deal with DHL to sponsor their training kit, helping it rise 22.3% to 29.6million.

Media revenues were up from 19.4million to 22.6million, largely thanks to United's status as Premier League champions ensuring they get a larger share of the Champions League pot, and a lucrative five-match tour of the United States.

In addition, matchday income has also grown 9.6% to 21.6million, thanks to the first complete sell-out of seasonal hospitality boxes since the plush Old Trafford quadrants were completed in 2006.

It leaves United's gross debt at 433.2 million.

which, according to the excellent Andersred's latest blog means that we're having to work harder just to stay more-or-less still - because the total paid so far by Manchester United to fund the Glazer's debt now stands at over 578 million
