Barcelona Tops Deloitte’s Football Money League

Barcelona have topped the 2020 Deloitte Football Money League for the first time ahead of Real Madrid and Manchester United.

According to Deloitte’s Football Money League, the Spanish club earned £741.1m in revenue in the 2018-19 season.

Real Madrid swapped places with Barca and fell to second on £667.5m, with Manchester United third on £627.1m.

With United having downgraded its revenue, Deloitte said the traditional financial powerhouse of English football was at risk of losing its crown for the first time, to Abu Dhabi-owned Manchester City or even Liverpool.

Tottenham overtook Arsenal and Chelsea to become the most revenue-generating club in a London mini-league thanks in part to the broadcast revenue from a Champions League run that took them to the final.

The north London club achieved its highest ever position of eighth with revenues of €521m, just ahead of Chelsea on £452.2m, with Arsenal occupying 11th spot on £392.7m, down from ninth.
