The company KPMG has published a rating of the most expensive clubs. Real Madrid leads the ranking for the second year in a row.
Auditing company KPMG has published a ranking of the most expensive football clubs in Europe in 2020. Like last year, Real Madrid still tops the list. The value of the “Royal Club” amounted to 3.478 million euros. This is an unprecedented figure in the sports world.
It is also noteworthy that this season, the profit of the Madridians was 675 million dollars (175 million more than the previous year). Of these, 189 million are due to ticket sales. It can also be said that none of the stadiums fills its budget as much as the Santiago Bernabeu. The rest of the profits came from 23 international sponsors, advertising deals, media licenses and the sale of its own product.
The second place was occupied by Manchester United, worth 3.342 billion euros. Barcelona of Catalonia (3,193 billion) took the third place, leaving behind Bayern Munich (2,878 billion).
The KPMG released the data today, although the report is due as of January 1, 2020.
It should also be noted that the Italian club was not among the top ten members of the Big Five. The most expensive Italian team, Turin’s Juventus (1,735 billion), took 11th place.
Interestingly, the most significant increase in value was shown by “Paris Saint-Germain” – 36.7 percent. On the other hand, Arsenal dropped 13.2 percent.
