Barcelona are further ahead of Real Madrid in the Deloitte Money League than they are in La Liga. The Catalan club become the first club to break the €800 million mark last season.

Published just eight months after the end of the 2018/19 season, the Money League is an independent analysis of the clubs’ relative financial performance.

FC Barcelona reach the top of the Money League for the first time ever and at the same time become the first club to break the €800m barrier, generating revenue of €840.8m.

The Catalan club, who replaced coach Ernesto Valverde overnight, increased their revenue by an incredible €150 million from the previous season. Real Madrid comparatively grew their revenue by less than €7 million to drop to second place.

Growth

The top 20 highest-earning football clubs for the 2018/19 season, with combined revenues growing 11% to €9.3bn, a new record.Only 16% of that was generated by matchday revenue, demonstrating the shift in economic focus of football clubs.

Manchester United (€711.5m) are in third but are at risk of losing their position as the Premier League’s highest revenue-generating club for the first time in next year’s edition of the Money League.

Tottenham Hotspur are eighth, the club’s highest-ever position, and have overtaken Arsenal and Chelsea to become London’s highest revenue-generating club for the first time since 1996/97.

The composition of the top 20 overall remains relatively stable with only two new entrants to the Money League – Olympique Lyonnais ranked 17th (up from 28th) and Napoli ranked 20th (up from 21st).
