    England’s football team "reached a sporting nadir" after being knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland last summer, according to Murad Ahmed of the FINANCIAL TIMES. But the nation’s "shortlived participation" in the tournament helped the FA to "achieve record revenues." English football’s governing body said that last season’s finances "were boosted by the national team competing in Euro 2016, as well as the completion of a number of deals, including the sale of broadcasting and naming rights for the FA Cup and a new kit contract with Nike." On Thursday, the FA reported turnover of £370M in the year ended July 31, 2016.
