Green Bay Packers Experience Record Profits


The Green Bay Packers announced the details of another record breaking financial year for the club on Tuesday.

According to the Associated Press:

Team President and CEO Mark Murphy told reporters the Packersgenerated a record $308.1 million in revenue, up 2 percent from 2012′s record $302 million.

”Another strong year on the field,” Murphy said. ”Fourth year in a row to be in the playoffs, won two straight NFC North (Division) championships. That helps our finances.”

That translated into profits for the club. The Packers arcked in a record $54.3 million in profits. A 26.4% increase from the previous year’s $43 million in profits.

It also is a net income record of $43.1 million, up 1% from 42.7% last year. And if profits are going up and expenses are going down that math works out for profits.

Expenses went from $259 million to $254 million, a 2% decrease.

”We’re still well above what we’d consider normal or expected revenue in pro shop sales, (stadium) tours and Hall of Fame visits,” Murphy said. ”It’s just really down from all-time highs.”

    The closing paragraph contradicts itself. Something also tells me your auto correct spelling changed raked to arcked on you. Thought you could have gone into what the Packers will do with this money since they are a public team.
