Saw this ...

Comes from Reuters News Agency ...

Seems Madrid got lucky again this year ...

Making them the richest club again, lmao ....

Not that this means a great deal but I thought people might like to read it.

MADRID, Spain: Real Madrid retained its status as the world's wealthiest soccer
club last season, according to a study released Wednesday by the consultancy
Deloitte.

Real Madrid had €351 million (US$511.97 million) in revenue in the 12 months to
June 30, 2007, up 20 percent from the same period in the previous season,
Deloitte said in its annual Football Money League study.

Manchester United was second with €315.2 million (US$459.75 million), up from
fourth in the previous season.

FC Barcelona, the second wealthiest club in the prior study, fell to third in 2006-07
with €290.1 million (US$423.14 million).

Deloitte ranked the world's top 20 clubs by revenue. All of them are in western
Europe, with six from England, four from Italy and Germany and three from Spain.

Deloitte said the total combined revenue from the 20 clubs increased by 11
percent to €3.7 billion (US$5.4 billion).

I think this is all based on turnover alone ...

Which doesn't make a company rich if they have debt or heavy outgoings ...

Maybe the Reuters accountants are confused and need some re-training, lmao :eek:

Rict Club in the world..........

Us? No............Real Madrid have beaten us to it this year.

1) Real Madrid: £236.2m
2) Man Utd: £212.1m
3) Barcelona: £195.3m
4) Chelsea: £190.5m
5) Arsenal: £177.6m

7) Bayern Munich: £150.3m

Unbelivable the amount of money the club turnsover daily......incredible figures. However, a main contributer to the vast sums of money are the hikes in ticket prices..........what do you think?

threads merged... do a quick search before you post a thread. Thanks :) Jazz

We are NOT the richest in the world.

This is just on revenue alone. We could bring in that much, splash out about the same, then there's a lot lot more behind the scenes than flippin revenue.

DO NOT BECOME OBLIVIOUS TO THE REAL FACTS!

United took a World record 92 million from Matchday takings last season, compared to AC Milan who took in less than 20 million.
Just shows our fans are being ripped off the most.
Over 4 times more than the European Champions...........its a joke

A fact like this is a bit vague ...

We accomodate 76,000 they accomodate 55,000 ...

How much is a ticket in Italy ... ?

The whole cost of living in Italy and most of Europe is a lot cheaper than the UK - so they have cheaper tickets !

Also ...

We need to know their average attendance per game last season - United's is about 75,900 I would imagine.

After knowing these facts we can compare ;)

United close on Real



United are rapidly closing the gap on Real Madrid to lay claim to being the world's wealthiest football club.


The latest Money League for the 2006/07 season, compiled by business advisory firm Deloitte sees the Reds leap two places from fourth to second place.

Real, who have topped the charts for the last three years, initially stole the title off United.

The Spanish giants increased their income by 20 per cent, with United's revenue up by an impressive 30 per cent.

United's rise was helped by the opening last season of Old Trafford's new quadrants, the stadium's capacity increasing to 76,000, and also the Reds' run to the Champions League semi finals.

Dan Jones, partner at Deloitte in Manchester, said: "With the new Premier League television deals now online for the 2007/08 season, Manchester United have the opportunity to significantly close the gap on Real. A successful Champions League run may even see United challenge for the number one spot next year.

"The big difference between United and Real is that Real can sell their own broadcast rights. But I'd expect United to rise further next year."

Moving up the charts

1 (1) Real Madrid £236.2m
2 (4) Manchester United £212.1m
3 (2) Barcelona £195.3m
4 (6) Chelsea £190.5m
5 (9) Arsenal £177.6m
6 (5) Milan £153m
7 (8) Bayern Munich £150.3m
8 (10) Liverpool £133.9m
9 (7) Internazionale £131.3m
10 (12) Roma £106.1m

Numbers in brackets are last year's positions
