“That’s over £15m a season” Financial analyst gives an example of how Spurs makes more money than rival
By Bruce Grove -

Financial Guru and Football Insider columnist, Kieran Maguire has revealed how much money Tottenham makes from just selling “pints and burgers” on matchdays as he compares their earnings to that of Aston Villa.

Villa is emerging as one of the Premier League’s top clubs and they have been spending money relentlessly to bolster their squad.

The Villans have gotten their fans excited about returning to the stadium next season and they announced recently that their season ticket renewals have hit record numbers.

Tottenham is one of the biggest clubs in England and that status reflects in the revenue they make from tickets sales and refreshment sales to their fans.

Maguire was reacting to the news that Villa is doing very well financially from the sale of their season tickets and reveals that Tottenham makes more money from just refreshments at their stadium alone than Aston Villa makes from allowing fans through their turnstiles on match days.

He told Football Insider: “Spurs make £800,000 per game just from catering. That’s over £15m a season.

“They make more from selling pints and burgers than Villa do from selling tickets.

“Villa Park is bigger than the likes of Brighton and Crystal Palace’s stadiums but those clubs still earn more from matchday.

“One thing I would say is that what seems to go into matchday income seems to vary from club to club. Some clubs include catering and matchday together, some won’t.

“I quote these figures because they come from the accounts but there is no agreed standard between the clubs themselves.”

Some finacial genius maybe pull a three figure to show Chelsea spend than Spurs. Accurate? Absolutely. Conflated to match a narrative. Surely does. Villa is fighting to stay above the seconds tier of the Premier League. We have manager last year, that said he was thrilled with the off season the club. Most pundits and footballing observers concluded we did. The same guy presided over some gad aweful football, but the chairman, ENIC. The grounds crew, the janitor is at fault and not the guy who think rubbing out the 18yard line is a good tactic. Am ready to move on. Name a manager and lets go. I guarantee Spurs will be competing in all front. You a will be back still finding a loss somewhere inspite of victory.

The match day income is huge obviously but I’d love someone to crunch the numbers and give us a best case scenario for stadium income.

This is important because Levy has called the Stadium the game changer.

I’ll be generous and add in another £20 million from European football, FA and League Cup and American football.

From concerts, eg Guns and Roses, fights Anthony Joshua and other big events I’ll be guessing but here goes twenty big events per annum at £2 million profit per event. That’s forty million.

I know some of the match day income isn’t net profit but I’m being generous, that gives us £75 million a year. Is that going to close the gap on Manchester City and Chelsea?

Yes, do we really need eleven players in a team?

Take the Ryanair model. They don’t need pilots either, or seats. 🤣

Mixture of TV money, season ticket sales and hospitality and merchandise all being down. Less prize money for a poor season. Like to see Levy’s books.

Revenue, turnover, I guess that wouldn’t be pure profit. Maybe that £200 million is what Levy projected the club would have made without Covid.

At one of the American football games they sold a £1 million quid on beer sales alone which was a record for a European stadium.

The “financial guru” is talking revenue, Spurs will be doing well to be making 30-40% profit on those catering sales. What do Villa make on season ticket renewals, surely thats 100% profit?

Alternative headline could be:

Villa treat fans with respect by pricing season tickets at affordable level and on par with performance.

Can someone please explain the reason for putting this absolute twaddle up on here? We make more money from pints than the Villa do?

Are you serious?

The article actually trying to highlight that we make more money off pints than Villa make of admissions, which, by the way, I suspect is also twaddle.
