Top Track 250

This 113-year old south London football club, which has been promoted to the Premier League more times than any other, was brought out of administration by chairman Steve Parish, 53, and three other investors in 2010. The club rejoined the Premier League in 2013 and has stayed in the top flight ever since. Television rights and merit payments for finishing 14th last season, together with other commercial income, boosted revenues 41% to £143.7m and almost trebled profits to £10.7m.
