Analysis: West Ham’s strong performance pays off while new loans lead to highest relative net interest in the league

  • West Ham are among the first Premier-League clubs to release their financial statements for the 2020/21 season – a season when the club’s strong performances on the pitch paid off financially. 
  • During the year, a new long-term loan agreement was made, which resulted in the club paying the highest net interest relative to total financial obligations in the Premier League. 
  • The London club are currently doing well both domestically and internationally, meaning this season should bring further boosts to turnover.

West Ham had a phenomenal performance on the pitch last season leading to the club's best league placement since the 1998/99 season.

They also had a busy year off the pitch as the London club replaced a short-term loan with a long-term agreement with MSD Holdings, giving the Hammers the ability to access up to about €135 million.

In March, €62 million was drawn down, while an additional €22.5 million was drawn down in September, after the 2020/21 accounts closed.
