For the first time in history, the club from the Etihad earned the most in the football world Manchester City could not climb the football roof of Europe last spring either, but it did financially. Citizens are inviolable when it comes to money, because, according to some calculations, they earned 644,900,000 euros last year, which is the highest in the entire club world.
For the owners of City, this is the first time since one of the most respected auditing companies reduces the bill to be at the helm, while so far the most at the top were Real (12 times), which finished the 2020-2021 season in second place (640,700,000 euros).
Manchester United (10 times), which was fifth (558,000,000), and Barcelona (2), which dropped from 582,100,000 euros from the first to the fourth position. According to the report, the 20 best clubs in terms of turnover in world football collected 8,178,000,000 euros in the 2020-2021 season, which is slightly more than in the previous season (8,162,000,000 euros).
This year, like last year, the analysis focuses on the revenue trend of the world's major football clubs in the economic and social context, which is strongly conditioned by the covid-19 pandemic. Manchester City is not only the first in terms of total revenue but also recorded a growth of 17%, unlike Real, which is down 7% compared to the previous year ...
The biggest growth among the 20 highest-income clubs was recorded by Aston Villa - even 59% (€ 207,300,000). In addition to Vilanse and Citizens, Leicester (49%), Wolverhampton (45%), West Ham (41%) and Inter (145) had double-digit percentage growth, while Barcelona (18%) and Zenit (10%) fell.
As many as 12 positions in the top 20 are occupied by Premier League clubs. Deloitte made the first calculations in 1998 (for the 1996-1997 season), when Manchester United was at the top with an annual income of "symbolic" 88,000,000 pounds from the current angle, while 20 clubs collected a total of 1,149,000,000 euros.
Two years later, the amount was higher than 2,000,000,000 euros for the first time, and in 2005 it climbed over 3,000,000,000. The revenues of the 20 most successful clubs over four billion were in the 2010-2011 season (4,409,000,000 euros), while in the 2019-2020 season they were for the first time over eight billion (8,162,000,000 euros).
Manchester City only shows how ready and how good they are. Of course, many teams have a good basis for the development of the club, but it seems that the moves they make are not good, and that much more is needed to create a good and stable club that will compete in the Champions League.
