Latest Update 2022: Top 20 Richest Football Clubs In The World And Their Wealth

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

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

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

According to the report, clubs in the Money League missed out on more than €2 billion (£1.7bn/$2.2bn) as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, with the absence of supporters from grounds impacting teams across two domestic campaigns.

Which club is the richest in the world?

Barcelona were named the world’s richest football club in 2021, according to the Deloitte rankings, but Manchester City have risen to the summit in 2022 after generating revenue of €644.9 million (£537m/$709m).

There are 11 Premier League teams inside the top 20, with Paris Saint-Germain the only representatives from France while German and Italian football provide two entrants apiece.
