Audit firm Deloitte has revealed its traditional ranking of the richest football clubs in the world, and the results place Barcelona at the head of the pack.

The La Liga giants top the list for the first time in history since the club’s formation back in 1899, with revenues estimated at €840.8 million EUR (approximately $936 USD). Additionally, Barça become the first franchise to exceed the €800 million EUR threshold.

Coming in second and third are Real Madrid and Manchester United, valued at €757.3 million EUR (approx. $842 million USD) and €711.5 million EUR (approx. $792 million USD), respectively. Rounding out the top five are Bayern Munich with €660.1 million EUR (approx. $735 million USD) and Paris Saint-Germain with €636 million EUR (approx. $707.8 million USD).

Elsewhere Juventus places 10 with Cristiano Ronaldo being a big reason for the club’s return, while the Premier League dominates the top 20 once again. Of the top 20, eight teams play in England’s Premier League, four are Italian, three are Spanish, three are German, and two are French. In total, the top 20 teams earned €9.3 billion EUR in revenue (approximately $10.3 billion USD), of which 44 percent came from broadcasting rights, 40 percent came from commercial activities, and 16 percent came from matchday revenue.

Published just eight months after the end of the 2018/19 season, the DFML remains the most contemporary and reliable independent analysis of the clubs’ relative financial performance. Head over to Deloitte for more details.
