Charlton's reliance on match day income

The Financial Times publishes some data today on how much clubs are reliant on match day income.  The average figure for the Premier League is 14 per cent, for the Championship 17 per cent and for League One/Two 32 per cent.  The latter figure is incomplete as some clubs at this level take advantage of a loophole in company law to publish shortened accounts.

The Pink Un's figures show that only two clubs in League One and Two rely on match day for over 50 per cent of their income: Charlton and Portsmouth.

The lesson to be drawn is that the club needs to boost commercial income as Thomas Sandgaard is intending.  Many potential sponsors were, of course, put off by the Duchatelet regime and subsequent 'owners'.
