11 of 20 clubs could have made profits in 2016-17 without fans at games

More than half of Premier League clubs could have played in empty stadiums and still made a pre-tax profit in the first season of the current broadcast deal, BBC research has found.

In 2016-17, during which clubs benefited from a record £8.3bn in global TV revenue, matchday income contributed less than 20p in every £1 earned by 18 top-flight outfits.

The number of clubs that would have recorded pre-tax profits even if matchday income was taken away rose from two in 2015-16 to 11 in 2016-17.

I bet figures for last season will be even more that could have done it.

Gives rise to the argument of setting the ticket prices lower for fans doesn't it.
