Chelsea Lagging in 4th Place in Shirt Sales Table
Shirt sales, as we all know, are a very lucrative financial stream.
Introducing three new shirts every season provides clubs with a cash boost.
But, who do you think sells the most shirts out of all the Premier League clubs?
Well, it appears that, according to a survey carried out by SportsDirect.com, it isn`t Chelsea Football Club.
Apparently, Chelsea finished in 4th place in the survey with 10% of the football shirts sold by our referenced source being Chelsea ones.
Topping the list, according to the Manchester Evening News, are Manchester United who, with 21% of the shirts sold by the aforementioned company, sell more than the combined shirt sales of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.
The full listing is as below:
• Manchester United: 32%
• Liverpool: 21%
• Arsenal: 15%
• Chelsea: 10%
• Tottenham: 8%
• Newcastle: 7%
• Manchester City: 4%
But we must stress this survey doesn`t include shirts sold by other retailers and by official club shops.
