Five Premier League clubs in top 10

Delottie have issued their 24th annual Football Money League and the Swiss Ramble has covered it in great depth and detail on Twitter this morning. If numbers is your thing, then it makes for a fascinating read.

Barcelona and Real Madrid remain the top two clubs in the world, in a year unlike no other. Deloitte believe the clubs featured have lost a combined £2 billion in match day revenue as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Manchester United fell out of the top 3, replaced by Bayern Munich, with Liverpool overtaking Manchester City to take fifth spot. Chelsea (8th) and Spurs (9th) also feature in the top 10, taking the total number of Premier League clubs to five in the top 10. Arsenal (11th) and Everton (17th) also feature in the top 20.

Champions League remains key

Chelsea’s return to the Champions League had a big impact on their finances understandably, but failing to reach the final again also impacted Spurs and Liverpool.

Spurs however received a big boost from the opening of their new stadium.
