City CEO Ferran Soriano commented: 

“Over the last five years, we have seen incredible growth in our global fan numbers. In the US, where we held our pre-season tour in summer 2022, it was encouraging to see the incredibly large number of blue shirts at our games and how our international fanbase is enjoying our football.

“We also conducted our transfer business optimally, welcoming new players and seeing others go on to new challenges, generating important profits for our club. Overall, Manchester City generated record revenues of £613.0 million and record profits of £41.7 million, the latter being more than double the previous club record.”
