Revealed – Five richest clubs in world football as per Deloitte Money League

The world’s biggest service provider annually releases the list of football’s richest clubs, with top sides from Europe occupying the top places almost every year.

Football club Barcelona are currently the richest club in world football, with the Deloitte Money League putting the club’s revenue at a staggering €800m.

The La Liga giants generated record revenue of €840.8m during the 2018/19 season to beat Spanish rivals Real Madrid and occupy top berth at the Deloitte’s table.

Almost 40% of the amount Barca generated in 2018/19 in revenue came from its commercial ventures, with broadcasting contributing 44% and matchday income contributing 19% to its annual revenue.

Deloitte predicts that the Catalan side would continue to occupy the top spot in the 2021 rankings, with the reigning Spanish champions set to generate over a billion euros in revenue in the coming seasons.The ascent of bitter rivals Barca to the top of money rankings saw its previous incumbents Real Madrid fall down to 2nd place in Deloitte’s Money League.

The Los Blancos were the world’s wealthiest club in the previous Deloitte’s report as they generated €750m in the 2017/18 season compared to Barcelona’s €690.4m.

But while Barca took their annual revenue to €840m in the 2018/19 campaign – an increase of €150m on a year-on-year basis, Real only saw a €7m increase in their revenue during the same period.

Hence the reason why Real have not only suffered a 1 place slump but their difference with 3rd place Manchester United has also seen a decrease.

The Red devils made €46m less in revenue than their counterparts from Madrid, catching up from last season where they lagged behind Zinedine Zidane’s side by €85m.Despite making 42m more in revenue in the 2018/19 campaign (610m) than they did in the previous season (568m), the reigning Premier League champions lost their place to PSG.

The French giants saw a massive €95m increase in revenue to usurp Manchester City and claim their place among the top five richest clubs in world football.

Two major reasons explain the rise in PSG’s revenues including the club signing new agreements with five new partners and extending their partnerships with six existing ones.

Bayern Munich continue to occupy the fourth position in Deloitte’s Money League for the fourth consecutive year to become the only club whose position has remained the same during that period.

The report claims that provided the Bavarians manage a strong Champions League showing this season, they could usurp Man United to become the third richest club in world football next year.
