Complete List Of The World’s Richest Football Clubs in 2022 Revealed

Deloitte’s latest Football Money League numbers, which rank the most lucrative clubs on the planet, has dropped, and here’s who made the list.

In March 2022, Deloitte published the 2022 Football Money League, which analyses the finances of the clubs that generate the highest revenue.

The latest findings showed that the top 20 clubs, all based in Europe, pulled in average revenue of €409 million (£340m/$450m), with those figures representing a marginal increase in 2019-20.

According to the analysis, the coronavirus pandemic cost clubs in the Money League more than €2 billion (£1.7 billion/$2.2 billion), with the absence of fans from stadiums affecting teams spanning two domestic seasons.

According to the Deloitte rankings, Barcelona was declared the world’s richest football club in 2021, while Manchester City has risen to the top in 2022 after producing an income of €644.9 million (£537 million/$709 million).
