Real Madrid still king of football revenue, beats Man Utd to second

by Tom Walker | 22 Jan 2015

European Champion Real Madrid remains the richest football club in the world, according to the latest edition of the annual Deloitte Football Money League – which measures annual revenues of football clubs.

It is the 10th year running that the Spanish club sits at the top of Deloitte’s annual survey, with revenues of €549.5m (£459.5m).

Manchester United now sits second in the table, with revenues of €518m (£433.2m) in 2013-14. It marks a comeback for the English Premier League (EPL) club, having been ranked fourth in last year’s survey.

While Real dominates the club rankings, the EPL is similarly sovereign when it comes to assessing the richest professional football league in the world.

A total of eight EPL clubs are placed within the top 20 this year, with Newcastle United and Everton joining Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Strikingly, every club that played in the EPL during the 2013-14 season has made it into the top 40 of the Money League – making the likes of Hull City and Crystal Palace worth more than Portuguese giants FC Porto and Italian club Lazio.

Austin Houlihan, senior manager at Deloitte, said: “The fact that all the clubs in the Premier League are in the top 40 is testament to the huge appeal of the league globally and also the equality of the distributions the clubs enjoy relative to their European counterparts.

“The Premier League’s new broadcast deals have translated into big revenue increases across the English top flight. In fact, every Premier League club reported record revenues in 2013-14. Between them, the eight English clubs in our top 20 achieved total broadcast revenues of €1.1bn (£0.9bn).

“Additionally, the Premier League is currently negotiating for the next cycle of media rights and further uplifts are anticipated.”
