Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said, 'I'm pleased that the Club has made a profit before depreciation for the fourth year in succession. The turnover increased by 33% which is mainly due to an increase in funding that the Club has received from the Football League. The Club also received an extra £142,626 from the increase in the solidarity payment from the Premier League.'

After taking depreciation into account the current year ended in a loss of £71,442 against a loss of £108,848 in the previous year. Turnover for the year end was £2,523,242 compared with £1,892,984 for the previous year. The Club's fixed tangible assets as per the balance sheet amounts to £6,730,515.

The gate receipts for the 2010-11 league season fell by 12%, however the Club's FA Cup run meant that overall the gate receipts were slightly above the previous season.
