Finance expert, Keiran Maguire has told Football Insider that Tottenham make more money selling pints and burgers across a while season than Aston Villa do with ticket sales.
This came after the announcement from Aston Villa that season tickets had been renewed for the 2021/22 season in record numbers.
Maguire revealed in an earlier Football Insider interview that Villa only rake in around £11m per season from their gate receipts, which is far below many other Premier League rivals.
Villa Park holds around 43,000 fans while the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium can hold around 63,000 and is specifically designed to drive revenue for the North London club.
He has now compared this figure to the amount Spurs make from selling food and drink on any given matchday. Of course, figures are based on full stadiums rather than reduced capacity.
Daniel Levy will be hoping to get the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back to full capacity for the 2021/22 campaign in order to finally reap the financial rewards of the new ground.
Maguire said: “Spurs make £800,000 per game just from catering. That’s over £15m a season.
“They make more from selling pints and burgers than Villa do from selling tickets.
“Villa Park is bigger than the likes of Brighton and Crystal Palace’s stadiums but those clubs still earn more from matchday.
“One thing I would say is that what seems to go into matchday income seems to vary from club to club. Some clubs include catering and matchday together, some won’t.
“I quote these figures because they come from the accounts but there is no agreed standard between the clubs themselves.”
