Ogren told United's website that revenue has dropped 40%, necessitating cost-cutting measures, like those enacted at Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Hibernian, and others where a mixture of cuts and deferrals have been used.
United like most other premiership clubs took in season ticket money and an article in the Record from June said that time sales were over 4000 tickets. Accies as we know haven’t taken a penny in season tickets so already a big drop in revenue, then there is match day catering, hospitality,etc. Accies have taken the catering, hospitality back indoors but apart from a few burger and bun events where you can wathc the game at the stadium on TV essentially thats not earning any cash so far this season.(And thats now banned anyway) There is plenty of stand and trackside advertising some of it new so that is still there and then there is the ppvtv money. Clubs which have sold season tickets appear to be allowing season ticket holders to watch for free so most of their additional funds there will come from away fans. in our case its both home/away but given the displays on offer there is a view that there hasnt been a huge home fan uptake. Ive seen no figures so no idea. So overall I wonder if we are struggling more than the bigger clubs. I know fans are crying out for additional signings to strengthen the squad but realistically is the money there. Im assuming unless Ronnie puts his hand in his pocket it isn’t.
