Richest Football Clubs 2022

Barcelona tops the list of 20 Richest Football Clubs 2022 despite being in debt shambles

Barcelona and Real Madrid topped the list of the world’s 20 wealthiest football clubs.

Premier League clubs are prominently represented on the list.

Madrid was knocked to the top spot in the list by La Liga arch-rivals Barcelona, despite the latter’s enormous £1.13 billion debt.

In late 2021, Wealthy Gorilla collated data from sources like as CNBC, Business Insider, and Sports Show to establish which clubs generated the most income based on annual reports from 2020.

All 20 teams were from Europe, with Barcelona, the 26-time Spanish champions, pulling in a staggering $959 million in revenue.

Madrid came in second place with $864 million in income, followed by Manchester United and Bayern Munich in third and fourth place, respectively.

Newcastle was one of five Premier League teams to finish in the top ten, with another four in the top twenty.

Last October, a Saudi Arabia-led consortium paid £300 million for the Magpies from Frasers Group CEO Mike Ashley.

Newcastle ended 19th with $228.6 million in income, just missing out on the top 20, but the Premier League team could rise much higher under its new owners.
