FA announce record turnover

The Football Association (FA) has announced a record turnover of £370m for the 2015/16 season.

After recording the best ever turnover the FA has said it will be able to invest "more money than ever" into the grassroots game.

The turnover increase from £318m to £370m is mainly down to broadcast rights, commercial deals and England playing at Euro 2016.

The FA has claimed it has injected a record £125m into "every level" of the domestic game, an increase from £117m in the year before.

Chief executive Martin Glenn added: "We are delighted to be in such strong financial health."

He added "At the end of 2016 we announced key commercial deals, including the inter­national broadcast rights for the Emirates FA Cup and the new 12-year deal with Nike, which means the FA is extremely well positioned to support English football for the foreseeable future."
