Seven Premier League Clubs In Football's Rich List
Thu 10th Feb 2011 | Money & Finance
Manchester United have a long way to go before they can match the revenues generated by Spain’s top two teams Barcelona and Real Madrid.
According to Deloitte’s annual Football Money League report released yesterday, the Spanish clubs earned £438.m and £398.1m respectively in 2009/10. Manchester United sits third on the list having generated £349.8m during the same period.
But despite the Spanish clubs dominance of the top two spots, Arsenal (5), Chelsea (6), Liverpool (8), Manchester City (11), Tottenham (12) are joined by Aston Villa (20), who break in to the top 20 for the first time with revenues £109.4m make up the seven Premier League clubs which give England the largest representation from any single country.
The report created by Deloitte, points to the strength in depth of England’s clubs, driven by the scale and relatively even distribution of the Premier League’s centrally negotiated broadcast monies and the success of English clubs in generating higher matchday revenues than their continental competitors.
Whilst this is good news for the Premier League the report shows that only Manchester United and Arsenal have less then 40% of their revenue coming from broadcasting monies.
Aston Villa are the most heavily reliant with 58% of their total income coming from broadcasting revenue with only 15% driven by commercial activities.
Manchester City made the biggest leap in the money league, moving up 11 places from 20 to 11 with commercial revenue more than doubling to £46.7m making it the principal driver of the club’s overall revenue growth.
Arsenal generated the most matchday income of the English clubs generating 42% of its total income for this activity. This is attributed to its premium pricing and increased matchday attendances. They also generated £157m from property development.
Chelsea achieved less success in terms of revenue growth, with total revenue growing by only £3.1m (2%) to £209.5m attributed to inpart, reduced matchday revenues. Hoever this was offset by increased broadcast and commercial revenues.
Liverpool slipped one place to eighth despite matchday revenue of £42.9m (€52.4m) in 2009/10 being slightly up (by £0.4m) on the previous year. This comes despite a 2% drop in average home league attendance to 42,863 following a less successful Premier League campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur moved three places up the Money League to 12th after posting record revenue of £119.8m, an increase of £6.8m (6%) from 2008/09. Tottanhams strong performances on the pitch and qualification to the Champions League helped to increase broadcast and commercial revenues.
