Chelsea announce £49.4m loss

Chelsea made a loss of 49.4 million pounds in the last financial year, but the West London club say they still satisfy UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

A group of Chelsea fans have owned Stamford Bridge since 1997
Chelsea's Stamford Bridge home.

The financial results for the year ending June 30, 2013, show a record turnover of 255.8 million pounds -- the fourth successive year it has increased -- despite exiting the Champions League at the 2012-13 group stage.

Chelsea enjoyed a 19 percent rise in commercial income from 67 million pounds to 79.6 million pounds as they won the Europa League, although a reduction in income from the success of winning the previous year's Champions League contributed to the 49.4 million-pound loss.

Despite that, Jose Mourinho's side will satisfy FFP regulations as the two-year monitoring period includes the 1.4 million-pound profit made in the 2011-12 season. The Blues also see around 15 million pounds knocked off their overall loss in add backs, which includes infrastructure costs, youth development costs and charitable donations amongst other outgoings.

That brings Chelsea's losses for the period to approximately 34 million pounds, falling under the FFP threshold of 45 million euros (37.5 million pounds).

"From the very beginning of the current ownership of Chelsea Football Club, a long-term objective was financial sustainability, and the subsequent implementation of Financial Fair Play by UEFA and by the Premier League has brought that to the top of the agenda for football clubs," Blues chairman Bruce Buck said.

"We are pleased therefore that we will meet the stipulations set down by UEFA in their first assessment period, and by our own analysis we are progressing from a commercial viewpoint as well as continuing to add trophies to our collection, which we never lose sight of as our most important goal."

The next financial year's results will be boosted by, amongst other things, a new 10-year kit deal with Adidas. The deal with the sportswear manufacturer is thought to be worth 300 million pounds and, while announced in June, will be recorded from the 2013-14 accounts.

Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay said: "For Chelsea FC to achieve a record level of turnover despite our first group-stage elimination from the Champions League shows we have structured our business and are growing in the correct way for long-term stability.

"Our philosophy is we build upon success on the pitch and although in these financial results we haven't repeated the sizeable profits made the previous year from player transfers, we believe the age profile of the existing squad means we will benefit from that investment for many years to come.

"A successful team builds awareness around the world and our increased commercial revenues in 2012/13 and new or extended partnership deals demonstrate we are working hard to capitalise on that."
