The Money League 2010

The new Deloitte Money League is out and the Bundesliga is stronger than ever.


Deloitte’s new Money League is up and Germany have added a club to the top 20.

Top 20 + Revenue
1. Real Madrid €401.4m (1st last year)
2. Barcelona €365.9m (3rd)
3. Man Utd €327.0m (2nd)
4. Bayern Munich €289.5m (4th @ €295.3m)
5. Arsenal €263.0m (6th)
6. Chelsea €242.3m (5th)
7. Liverpool €217.0m (7th)
8. Juventus €203.2m (11th)
9. Internazionale €196.5m (10th)
10. AC Milan €196.5m (8th)
11. Hamburg €146.4m (15th @ €127.9m)
12. Roma €146.4m (9th)
13. Lyon €139.6m (12th)
14. Marseille €133.2m (16th)
15. Tottenham Hotspur €132.7m (14th)
16. Schalke 04 €124.5m (13th @ €148.4m)
17. Werder Bremen €114.7m (unranked)
18. Borussia Dortmund €103.5m (unranked)
19. Man City €102.2m (20th)
20. Newcastle United €101.0m (17th)

Stuttgart dropped out, but Werder Bremen replaced them on the strength of their UEFA Cup final.

Meanwhile Dortmund seems to have put all of their financial woes behind them and joined the top 20. For one of Germany’s biggest clubs, it seems unnatural that they were absent for so long.

So with five of the top 20 clubs, Germany takes over sole second having passed Italy. Meanwhile Bayern held strong at the fourth spot, but lost ground to the top 3. Whereas last year, they were right on Barcelona’s tail; Bayern held position but Barca moved to second and United dropped to third, although Bayern Munich lost revenue and fell behind 3rd place by an additional €22 million. Granted, it was to the two finalists from last year’s Champions League. However it does show how finishing well in the premier competition can effect a club’s bottom line.

The interesting aspect to this is that Germany are 2 behind England in total teams on the table. However Newcastle, who currently hold 20th, will drop out next year due to being in the second division of English football.

Meanwhile, Stuttgart, who dropped out, but are still hovering near the cutoff, have a strong Champions League this year to possibly propel them back into the mix next year, which could see Germany equal England at 6 each. However, Bordeaux or Olympiacos, both hefty clubs could see themselves in the top 20 with a good Champions League run. Valencia or Benfica, who have both been in the top 20 within the past four years might return with a run to the finals of the Europa League.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to be snide. Thanks for the info. And debt is definitely not the only thing missing for meaningful comparisons. What about Hoffenheim or ManCity? I think they both have financial possibilities larger than indicated by revenue. Interesting would also be the overall assets of the club – who owns the stadium for example. In terms of player transfers, recent changes in tax code in Spain may also be interesting. Personally, I think financial analysis is vastly underrated and underreported in soccer; at least here in Germany. I would love to hear (or read…) more in-depth info about this apart from old clichés. No everybody cross your fingers for Cologne vs. Munich! 😉

    If you don’t know what the money league is, then just ask the question without being snide. I’m sorry I assumed. Yes, Deloitte’s money league is revenue. And no it doesn’t take into account debt.

    So what is this? Annual revenue? Some more info is needed to make it even marginally interesting.
