Manchester United Tops Football Rich List
Revenue ranking of football clubs
In its annual ranking, published for the twentieth time this year, Deloitte ranks the largest football clubs around the world in terms of (non-transfer) revenues including matchday revenue (mostly ticket sales), revenue from broadcasting rights as well as revenue from other commercial activities (e.g. sponsorship deals, merchandising).
Interestingly, Manchester United also topped the Money League table when it was first published in 1996/97. Back then, the club’s revenue amounted to roughly $110m, illustrating how vastly the financial landscape of professional football (or soccer) has changed since the turn of the millennium.
This chart ranks the world's largest football clubs in terms of non-transfer revenue generated in the 2015/16 season.
