Financial pressures on Championship clubs

Share/Save

The financial pressures on Championship clubs as they seek promotion to the Premier League are emphasised by the fact that they made an average loss of just under £10m in the 2015-16 season.  Only Wolverhampton Wanderers made a profit and that was because of a player sale.

Middlesbrough made the biggest loss at £32m, followed by Brighton and Hove Albion at £25.9m.  QPR had the biggest wage bill at £40.8m, almost equivalent to their turnover.
