Ahead of next Monday’s annual convention, Derry GAA treasurer Martin Devlin has published the county’s financial accounts, which show a surplus of £348,842 for the 2021 financial year.
Income for the year is £1,081,687 which is up from the 2020 figure of £943,870. This includes commercial income of £208,213, and income from associated bodies. Also included is an intake from the #WeAreDerry Derry GAA Championships streaming service, which amounted to over £45k and is a combination of live TV subscriptions and Season Passes for on-demand 2021 Championship content.
Net expenditure is down to £850,511 in 2021 from a level of £946,818 in 2020. This includes a 15% increase in team expenditure from £340,294 (2020) to £392,178 in the 2021 financial year.
Capital spend during 2021 included works to upgrade two training pitches at Owenbeg, now in their final stages, as well as the installation of a next generation broadband facility which was used to live stream games from Owenbeg during the club championships. The new pitches are expected to be available for use during summer 2022.
