City halve losses

Manchester City have announced pre-tax losses of £93.4 million for the 2011-12 season.

It means the Premier League champions have halved their losses, following a record loss of £197.5 million in the 2010-11 campaign. City's annual revenue also rose beyond £200 million for the first time, partly because of their debut campaign in the Champions League.

In total, City's revenue went up by 51% to £231.1 million, including £22 million from their Champions League campaign and £97 million in sponsorship, up from £48.5 million the previous year.

Chief executive officer Ferran Soriano said: "What I have found is a club on the verge of a historic transformation, reinforced by a genuine commitment to doing things well. It is a club with a rich history and the potential for an even brighter future."

City hope the increase in their turnover will help them on their long-term goal of breaking even.

UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules come into effect next season but City believe they will be able to meet the guidelines because £15 million of their expenditure is attributable to infrastructure and youth development costs while £80 million comes from contracts that predate 2010, which should qualify them for some relief.
