Performance

We’ve been breaking records off the pitch too.

Manchester City’s revenues reached an all-time high, breaking £500 million for the first time. That’s an increase of 44% in five years. As we enter our fourth year as a profitable entity, profits were reported at £10 million.
Our commercial and broadcast revenues increased by 7% and 4% respectively. Gatorade, Tinder and Marathonbet joined us as new partners – and several of our partnerships were renewed and extended.
When it comes to performance, an independent study estimated the total points tally of Premier League teams based on their wage bills. Manchester City outperformed every other club by some distance, beating their initial prediction of 73 by 27 points.

Our partners

We're winning together by working together.

Our commercial revenues continued to grow in 2017-18. The 7% increase was driven in part by our signing of a number of significant new partners, including globally recognised brands Gatorade, Tinder and Marathonbet.
Our partners all developed engaging activations during the year, but some of the most notable were with SAP, Wix and UBTECH, which received recognition from sports industry body awards. In addition, we renewed and extended relationships with several existing partners.

Global vision

Bringing the world closer through our beautiful game.

The pre-season tour took Manchester City’s men’s team to Houston, Nashville and Los Angeles where they faced Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United, scoring seven goals and winning two of the three games.
More than 1.7 million people tuned in for April 2018’s Manchester derby, making it the most watched live Premier League game in US history.
A sixth club was added to the City Football Group stable with the acquisition of newly promoted La Liga side Girona FC. In August 2017, Manchester City travelled to Catalonia for a pre-season friendly against our newest sister-team, and five young players were loaned to the club.
Two other sister-clubs, Melbourne City and New York City FC, both welcomed new managers. Warren Joyce joined the A-League side in June 2017, and Domènec Torrent left Pep Guardiola’s coaching team to join New York City FC after Patrick Vieira’s departure in June 2018.

People & places

Championing accessibility and opportunity at every level.

In April, we were awarded the Level Playing Field Centre of Excellence Award in recognition of the accessible facilities and services we offer at the Etihad Stadium. To date, it’s only been presented to five football stadia in the UK.
In June, the Premier League awarded us the advanced level Equality Standard for commitment to equality and diversity at every level in June. We were commended for our “palpable enthusiasm and commitment to furthering equality and diversity and...how the club’s philosophy is closely aligned to inclusion”.
From reducing waste to using water and energy more efficiently, we've been working to protect the environment at every scale.
There’s always more we can do, and we’re determined to keep on improving for our staff, our fans and our local community.
