Deloitte Football Money League

Deloitte’s Sports Business Group estimates that Football Money League clubs will miss out on revenue of over €2 billion by end of the 2020/21 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic

  • The 24th edition of the Deloitte Football Money League profiles the financial performance of the highest revenue generating clubs in world football during a disrupted 2019/20 season;
  • This year’s top 20 Money League clubs generated €8.2 billion, a decline of 12% compared to 2018/19 (€9.3 billion); This €1.1 billion decrease is explained by:
    • a €937m (23%) drop in broadcast revenue, primarily due to revenue deferral and broadcaster rebates;
    • a €257m (17%) fall in matchday revenue; and
    • offset by a €105m (3%) increase in commercial revenue.
  • Average revenue generated per club in the Money League top 20 was €409m in 2019/20, compared to €464m in 2018/19. This is similar to levels in the 2017/18 season;
  • Rebates to broadcasters for the ‘big five’ leagues and UEFA reportedly total almost €1.2bn currently, of which a large proportion is borne by Money League clubs; and
  • Matchday revenue of Money League clubs will likely be close to nil from March 2020, with fans seemingly unlikely to be able to return in significant numbers for any of the 2020/21 season.

The 20 highest revenue generating clubs in world football will have missed out on over €2 billion in revenue by the end of the 2020/21 season, according to the 24th edition of the Football Money League published by Deloitte’s Sports Business Group. Set against the context of the global economic and social disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2019/20 season, the report profiles the highest revenue generating clubs in world football.
