Real Madrid reports revenue boost

The Associated Press

MADRID -- Real Madrid says it posted record revenue of more than a half billion in the 2011-12 season, an increase of seven percent.

The world's richest club says it earned $673 million -- up from a record $628 million -- for a profit of $44 million in the season it won the Spanish league.

Madrid says its debt load dropped from $221 million to $162 million as it comes in line with UEFA's financial fair play requirements.

Madrid, which leads Spanish rival Barcelona and Manchester United in the rich list, says the revenue figures are "the biggest sum of any sporting institution in the world."
