topped the Deloitte Football Money League for the first time. The current England champions have become just the fourth club to ever make it to the top of Deloitte’s list of top soccer clubs in terms of revenue every year.

Three clubs with revenues over 600 million euros

City’s revenues of £ 571.1m (€ 644.9m) in 2020-21 saw The Citizens climb from sixth to first place in 2022. Their annual revenues have increased almost 45-fold since the first report covering the 1996-97 season. (EUR 640.7 million) came second and Bayern Munich (EUR 611.4 million) came third.

(EUR 582.1 million) fell to fourth place, and Manchester United (EUR 558 million) came fifth, the lowest they have ever held. The top ten also included (EUR 556.2 million), (EUR 550.4 million), Chelsea (EUR 493.1 million), Juventus (EUR 433.5 million) and Tottenham (EUR 406.2 million).

Pandemic and its impact on club revenues

Clubs from England dominated the top 20, with 11 teams from the top league. Wolverhampton was included in this for the first time in the history of the ranking, with revenues of just over 219 million euros.

Matchday revenues in the leagues have dropped to an all-time low of € 111 million, or 1% of total club revenues, due to the impact of playing matches behind closed doors during the coronavirus pandemic in Europe.

In total, the clubs in the top 10 report generated EUR 8.2 billion in revenue, an increase of less than one percent compared to 2019-20 and more than EUR 1 billion less than in 2018-19. Clubs lost well over € 2 billion in revenue in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
