How Much Do The Arsenal Board Get Paid?

This is an update of a bog post I did way back in 2012: a handy table showing how much the Arsenal Board have taken in salaries and expenses since 2002. Ivan Gazidis became the first non-football employee to take a base salary of £1m plus in 2011, and judging by his inflation-busting salary and bonus rises since then I can only imagine he’s doing a fantastic job.

Lord Harris remains the only director not to take any remuneration at all. The club make a donation to charity of their ‘standard’ expenses amount instead. However, he does of course get the same perks as the other directors: the best seats, free gourmet meals in the Diamond Club, etc. That kind of hospitality would cost anyone else a six-figure sum every year. 

The other thing this doesn’t show is the two fees of £3m that Stan Kroenke took in 2014 and 2015, as they went to his company rather than to him personally.
