Financial Forecast: Aston Villa saved by a stadium sale
11 September 2019
Villa have been posting loss after loss since 2012, and they are expected to post another loss in the 2018/19 annual report.
Aston Villa were set to break the FFP-rules but were saved by the owners, Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris, who bought Villa Park.
Here are Aston Villa's 2018/19 finances predicted.
Aston Villa were relegated in 2015/16 and from then on their finances have been alarming. In the season of relegation, Villa posted a loss before tax of over £80 million, which was mainly due to a massive wage bill and player amortisations.
In the following years, Villa have been on the edge of breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules and their 2018/19 finances will have to improve drastically, if they are to adhere to those rules.
