Charlton Athletic Football Club financial statements for the period ending June 30th 2019 were set to be filed at Companies House this week.
However, due to the COVID-19 crisis there have been delays in getting the signed statements from the United Arab Emirates. The club has had an application for an extension accepted, as the statements would not have been submitted with the correct signatures in time for the March 31st deadline.
The full set of accounts to be submitted can be viewed here and below are the key points.
- The report highlights that the 2018/19 season saw the first team triumph on the pitch, securing promotion to the Sky Bet Championship
- Charlton Athletic made a loss of £10.1m compared to the loss of £10.1m the previous year
- Revenue from central income increased from £1.4m to £1.5m because of a slight increase in EFL distributions
- Matchday income increased from £3.4m to £4.1m in-part because of increased revenue generated by the sold-out, home, play-off semi-final against Doncaster Rovers and the play-off final at Wembley against Sunderland
- Overall total income was up £0.6m from the previous season to £7.873m.
- The Charlton Academy continued to deliver, with eight players making their first team debut in the 2018/19 season and academy graduates playing very important roles in the first-team’s promotion
