Liverpool has surpassed Manchester United in the Deloitte Football Money League for the first time in the publication’s 26-year history.
The 20 football clubs with the highest income production in the world are ranked by Deloitte’s Football Money League.
Additionally, according to the most recent data, United trail both Liverpool and Manchester City.
Man City, Erik ten Hag’s cross-town opponents, are currently in first place in the Money League after generating massive income of £619.1 million in 2021–2022.
The figures do include matchday, broadcast, and advertising revenue but do not include transfer fees.
United actually improved from the previous year after earning £583.2 million in 2021–2022.
The Red Devils’ position in the ranking is fourth, one spot behind Liverpool, thanks to an 18% rise in revenue over the previous year.
But it’s the first time they’ve lagged Liverpool since Deloitte started keeping track of things.
With earnings of £594.3m, Jurgen Klopp’s team jumped from seventh to third in the previous year.
Due in large part to their run to the Champions League final and an increase in matchday revenue, that is a 22% gain from the previous year.
Six of the top 10 are made up of Premier League teams, with Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal also appearing on Deloitte’s list.
And in the conflict between the two North London clubs, Spurs triumph.
The team led by Antonio Conte is ninth on the list following a startling 23 percent gain in revenue, bringing their total to £442.8 million.
That is more than £75 million more than Arsenal, who reported revenue of £367.1 million despite a 13% increase.
Five more Premier League teams, including West Ham (15), Leicester (17), Leeds (18), Everton (19), and Newcastle (20), are ranked outside the top ten.
Sam Boor, director of Deloitte’s Sports Business Group, stated: “The Premier League’s financial superiority is unlikely to be challenged in the coming seasons.”
“This is particularly apparent at a time when these clubs continue to attract international investment which often, in the best examples, encourages a focus on profitability, as well as on-pitch success.”
Liverpool Football Club
Liverpool Football Club is an English professional football club based in Liverpool.
The Premier League, the top division of English football, is where the team plays.
The team was established in 1892, joined the Football League the following year, and has played all of its home games at Anfield ever since.
The team has won a record nine League Cups, eight FA Cups, 19 League championships, and 16 FA Community Shields at the domestic level.
The club has won six European Cups, three UEFA Cups, four UEFA Super Cups—all English records—and one FIFA Club World Cup in international competitions.
When Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, and Kenny Dalglish led the team to a combined 11 League titles and four European Cups in the 1970s and 1980s, the club firmly established itself as a dominant force in both local and European football.
Under the leadership of Rafael Bentez and Jürgen Klopp, respectively, Liverpool won two additional European Cups in 2005 and 2019. In 2020, Jürgen Klopp guided Liverpool to its 19th League title, the club’s first in the Premier League era.
One of the wealthiest and most popular sports teams in the world is Liverpool. The team alongside Manchester United and Everton have had a long-standing rivalry.
The squad switched from red shirts and white shorts to an all-red home uniform in 1964, managed by Shankly, and has been wearing it ever since. “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is the club’s national anthem.
