Mayo GAA recorded a surplus of €216,847 for 2020 after the success of commercial activity centered around their streaming service, as well as significant government support, and a dramatic reduction in the cost of preparing teams.

Income for the 12-month period was €2,310,471, compared to expenditure of €2,093,624.

Team costs for 2020 were €721,862 compared to €1,714,722 in 2019, a reduction of €992,860

The accounts end on 31 October, so it does not include the end of this footballing season which extends into next Sunday. Mayo played their first football championship game on 1 November.

Gate receipts decreased by €582,550 to €394,460.

Fundraising fell by just €29,750 from €427,857 to €398,107.

It was commercial income which kept finances on track in the county as it increased by €79,063 to €542,947 "mainly as a result of Mayo GAA TV" according to the county board.  

Financial assistance from the state and Croke Park amounted to €330,209, which led to Mayo recording the surplus for the year.

Mayo's footballers play Dublin next Saturday in the All-Ireland football final.
