Real Madrid remains top of the Football Money League as Sterling’s slide puts brakes on English clubs
This year’s Money League is based on the latest available revenue figures in respect of the 2007/08 season, largely before the global economic downturn. Whilst next year’s Money League will show some early signs of how the changing economic environment is affecting the game’s top clubs (for the current 2008/09 season), it will not be until 2009/10 that there is a fuller picture of the impact.
Reflecting on the potential impact of the economic downturn on Money League clubs, Paul Rawnsley, Director in the Sports Business Group commented: “The unique nature of the football industry will enable major clubs to be relatively resistant to the economic downturn. Clubs’ match attendances are holding up well and clubs in each of England, Germany, France and Spain have TV deals secured well into the future at enhanced levels.
However, the clubs are not complacent and will have to work hard to grow further matchday and commercial revenue streams for 2009/10.
