Manchester United have announced record quarterly revenues.
United's revenues rose by 29.1 per cent to £98million for the first quarter of this financial year thanks to new sponsorship deals and the effect of the new Premier League TV rights deals.
The Premier League deal has seen United's broadcasting income rise by 40.9 per cent, but even that has been outstripped by the club's growth in commercial income of 62.6 per cent with 12 new sponsorship deals including a global contract with Russian airline Aeroflot.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: "We are pleased to have achieved another record first quarter, driven by the strength of our commercial business and increased broadcasting revenues.
"Our unique approach to the commercial business will continue to drive future growth."
