Football - Soccer-Man City halve annual loss after winning Premier League

LONDON, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Manchester City halved their annual loss to 97.9 million pounds ($157.81 million) in 2011-12 thanks to a jump in commercial revenues in their Premier League-winning season.


Commercial revenue doubled on the back of a new partnership with Etihad Airways.

City, owned by Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Mansour, reported a record loss for English soccer of almost 200 million pounds in the previous year. ($1 = 0.6204 British pounds) (Writing by Keith Weir, editing by Mark Meadows)
