The European football team with the highest midpoint enterprise value in January 2020 was Real Madrid with approximately 3.5 billion euros, followed closely by Manchester United with over 3.4 billion and Barcelona in third place with 3.2 billion euros.  

Brand value of English times higher than Germany and Spain combined

   When taking a look at combined brand values by country, England stands out reaching a total of 8.7 billion euros with its‘ Premier League teams. Even though teams of the German Bundesliga have a higher average stadium attendance, the Premier League generates the highest revenue of all the European football leagues by far, also having the highest operating profit.

Spanish teams

  As the statistic shows, Real Madrid reached the highest enterprise value, however FC Barcelona had the highest average attendance in La Liga and is also the team with the best paid players. Noteably the transfer fee spent has more than doubled in the last few years, which might influence future statistical rankings.
