ronaldo rooney Nine Premier League Clubs Make Forbes Top 25 Richlist

This just in – Premier League clubs are big money businesses. Forbes released their list of most valuable soccer teams. Here are some of the more interesting findings for the Premier League.

Three Premier League clubs – Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool – are worth over $1 billion, joining Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in that gilded club. This, of course, does not factor in the hundreds of millions in debt hanging over all three clubs.

Cristiano Ronaldo may long for Real Madrid, but he currently plays for the demonstrably biggest club in the world. Man United is worth $1.87 billion. Real Madrid are the next highest at $1.35 billion. United brought in $160 million in income last year, $68 million alone from winning the Champions League.

An unheralded golden egg in United’s portfolio is Old Trafford. The club owned stadium is 27% larger than the next biggest Premier League stadium, seating 76,000. The stadium alone earned United $200 million in revenue last year.

There are six other Premier League clubs on the top 25 list: Chelsea (8 – $800 million), Tottenham (11 – $445 million), Manchester City (17 – $310 million), Newcastle (19 – $285 million), Aston Villa (21 – $240 million), Everton (24 – $207 million). West Ham, on the list last year, dropped off it.

The Premier League has a combined $4.5 billion in debt.

On current form, Newcastle will be the largest club in the English championship next season.

Arsenal and Liverpool rake in over $15 million per year from Emirates and Carlsberg respectively to employ you as a human billboard when you wear their shirts.

To emphasize the revenue disparity the Premier League enjoys, Manchester City earned 2.4 times as much revenue as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Unfortunately, the club does not own its stadium.

  1. Big Al says:

    Too bad the quality of the league sucks.

  2. Walter says:

    Frankly, I don’t see how you can put Man U, Liverpool, or most other EPL teams on this list when they are in debt up their eyeballs. Man Utd can’t even afford to service the debt they have. Liverpool is in even worse shape. All the while, Real Madrid & bayern are turning a handsome profit.

  3. shernail says:

    how can manchester united be the richest club in the worll when the ow 63 billion in debt calculate what they owe an calculate what their earnings may be an then you will that real madrid is by far the richest club in the world

    “To emphasize the revenue disparity the Premier League enjoys, Manchester City earned 2.4 times as much revenue as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Unfortunately, the club does not own its stadium.”

    How shall this work: Bayern Munich had a total revenue of 295 Mio Euros last season (ranked 4th behind Real, Man Utd and Barca). City didn`t even make the top 20 of the latest Deloitte report. How did you come up with that figure???!

    Bayern makes almost twice as much money from sponsorship deals and merchandising than Manchester United. It`s a big club – at least in financial terms.

  5. according to my view,i want you guys[forbes] to involve some of the africans and arabians clubs on yo rank coz there are a lot of richest clubs in this region.
