WRU Announces Record £64m Turnover


WRU announces record £64m turnover in annual report

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) had a record turnover of £64.2m last year – its highest ever, its annual report shows.

With the Rugby World Cup just days away, it is a £3.2m increase for the WRU on last year's figure of £61m.

The report says the Millennium Stadium debt, which was about £75m when it was built in 1999, is now £14.2m.

In his last profit announcement before stepping down, WRU chief executive Roger Lewis said the success was down to a “clear strategy”.

“I am delighted to be able to announce such a strong financial position before I step aside from my role within the group,” he said.
