Summary

This is the twelfth year of the publication, profiling the largest clubs in terms of revenues in the world’s most popular sport. The Deloitte Football Money League is the most contemporary and reliable analysis of clubs’ relative financial performance and is released less than nine months after the end of last season, as soon as all the clubs’ revenue figures are available to us.  For the purposes of this publication, we look at the best publicly available measure of financial comparison: revenue from day to day football business operations.

Real Madrid retain top position in the Money League for a fourth successive year with revenues of €366m.  The top three positions remain unchanged with Manchester United in second place with €325m and FC Barcelona in third place with €309m.

Almost all Money League clubs have shown revenue growth in this year's Money League, which covers the 2007/08 season. The impact of the exchange rate has impacted on the number of English clubs in this year's list although the Premier League is represented by 7 clubs in the top 20 – Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Manchester City.

Our focus this year

In addition to our usual profiles of the top 20 clubs and their revenue sources we provide a feature article examining the impact of the economic downturn on the world’s top football clubs across the three core revenue streams – matchday, broadcast and commercial – and also clubs’ wage costs and financing. Our particular focus is on the impact the downturn has already had on clubs, the challenges clubs now face going forward and the options they have in adjusting to this changing environment.

The Deloitte Football Money League was compiled by Dan Jones, Austin Houlihan, Rich Parkes, Martyn Hawkins, Simon Hearne, Amelia Ashton-Jones and Caspar Schmick. Our thanks go to all those who have assisted us, inside and outside the Deloitte international network. We hope you enjoy this edition.
