Top Five Richest Club in England You Need To Know

Five Richest Club In England: Every year Deloitte release their Football Money League which documents the eye-watering revenue generated by the richest football clubs on the planet, and more often than not, a good chunk of them are English, so we’ve done our league of the richest football clubs in England.

Without much talk, here are the 5 richest football clubs in England as of June 2021.

5. Tottenham Hotspur – €445.7 / £397 million

A good run in the Champions League and a move to their new 62,000 stadia has seen Tottenham become London’s richest club after posting a record revenue figure in 2019.

However, in 2020 Tottenham slipped a place as their revenue fell by €75m.

While closed stadia dented valuable match day income. Their Broadcasting Revenue increases to a massive €276.7m but a closed brand new stadium hit seat revenue very hard.

Revenue breakdown –

  • Matchday Revenue: €107.7m
  • Revenue: €155.0m
  • Commercial Revenue: €183.0m

4. Chelsea – €469 / £408 million

Chelsea v Leicester City – Premier League

Through the backing of their billionaire Russian owner, Roman Abramovich, Chelsea is always a top ten contender on the football rich list.

In 2019 they slipped one place as revenue remained pretty much unchanged, in 2020 Chelsea climbed one place despite seeing revenue fall by €43m. Like all Premier League clubs, they suffered badly because of the Covid-19 turmoil

Premier League team Chelsea finished third in the English division and had a very poor run in the UEFA Champions League last year.

The club has some massive sponsorship deals including Nike and Yokohama Tyres and a loyal fan base that keeps revenues strong.

An amazing 2020/21 season including the much-coveted Champions League title should see Chealsea rise up the rich list ranks next year

Revenue breakdown –

  • Matchday Revenue: €107.7m
  • Broadcasting Revenue: €155.0m
  • Commercial Revenue: €183.0m

3. Manchester City – €549.2 / £478 million

Manchester City has seen revenues have to go through the roof in recent years. Big money has been invested and spent in the club which has rewarded them with plenty of silver wear. Revenue fell by €61m last year but Manchester City remained the sixth richest club in the world.

An average of 54,054 fans to a home game and massive broadcasting deals and commercial contracts make up most of the revenue. Its the technical kit supplier is Nike and its shirt sponsor is Etihad Airways. But a new kit deal with Puma should see revenue figures rise in 2020.

On the 27th of November 2019, it was announced that Silver Lake Management, a US-based PE group mainly investing in technology, is making a $500million (£388million) investment in Manchester City.

It is set to own a 10 percent stake in City Football Group following the transaction. This is the largest private equity-backed football club deal of all time.

Another Premier League win and great season in the Champions League should see Man City as a big riser on the rich list soon.

Revenue breakdown –

  • Matchday Revenue: €47.6m
  • Broadcasting Revenue: €217.0m
  • Commercial Revenue: €284.6m

2. Liverpool – €558.6 / £486million

Champions Leagues’ glory in 2019 and the second place in their domestic Premier League gave Liverpool a massive revenue boost. They followed this up in 2020 by becoming Premier League champions for the first time in three decades 2020.

They have been exceptional of late, dominating the Premier League and finally rewarding their millions of loyal long-term fans.

Jurgen Klopp’s side climbed into the top five from seventh place last year, despite revenue falling by €46m. All Premier League clubs’ 2019-20 income suffered as a result of the pandemic delaying completion of the season.

Revenue breakdown

  • Matchday Revenue: €82.7m
  • Broadcasting Revenue: €232.5m
  • Commercial Revenue: €243.4m

1. Manchester United – €580.4 / £506 million

The Red Devils remain the wealthiest football club in England but their dismal performance in Europe is hitting the financials hard. The richest football club in the world in 2017 (and for many years before that) is back one place this year to fourth.

In 2020 they lost 135 million euros, which was a 19% drop in total income from the previous year.

Compared to their poor on-pitch performance, Manchester United is still a money-making machine, they can still pull in the big sponsorship deals which will help them stay close to the top of the rich list for many years to come.

Revenue breakdown –

  • Matchday Revenue: €98.8m
  • Broadcasting Revenue: €159.9m
  • Commercial Revenue: €321.7m
