Manchester United missing out on £26million-a-year in potential revenue according to finance experts

Manchester United Football Club are apparently missing out on a potential £26million per season in revenue, according to Duff & Phelps, via Sky Sports News.

However, bringing in that money would come at a huge cost, as the Red Devils would have to sell the naming rights to Old Trafford.

There is huge money in stadium naming rights in Premier League football, with clubs making around £135million from selling their stadium name, but for Manchester United, it just wouldn’t feel right if the Theatre of Dreams became the ‘Adidas Arena’ or something similar…

While under the Glazer ownership, I’m surprised this step hasn’t already been taken. They love sponsorship and advertising deals, heck, Manchester United even has an official tractor partner for goodness sake. I just hope that they don’t smell the money and take this deal, because it’d be another nail in the coffin at Old Trafford.

Arsenal have The Emirates Stadium, City have The Etihad, it’s becoming a modern trend in football, especially amongst the top clubs with foreign owners. The Sky Sports article claims that United have no plans in taking the money at this point, but things can change very quickly in football…
