Seagulls soar to new heights with a £122.8 million profit for 2022/23 financial year

April 3 – Premier League Brighton and Hove Albion have reported a record profit after tax for the 2022/23 season of £122.8 million, a jump of almost £100 million on the £24.1 million reported the previous year.

Turnover also grew a record 17.2% to £204.5 million, against £174.5 million.
