The Deloitte Football Money League is a ranking of football clubs by revenue generated from
football operations, perhaps the best way of comparatively assessing football clubs'
financial strength. It is produced annually by the accountancy firm Deloitte and released in
early February of each year, describing the season most recently finished.
Rankings for the 2006–07 season
The total revenue of the 20 richest clubs in the footballing world was over a record €3.73
billion. No side could displace Real Madrid, who remain top of football's financial rankings
for the third year running after seeing their revenues leap 20 percent to €351.8 million
during the 2006/07 season.
Manchester United displaced Barcelona in second place, the Spanish club moving down to
third. Chelsea's revenue increase sees them return to the top five, into fourth place whilst
Arsenal's move to the Emirates Stadium transformed their revenues moving them up to fifth
place. This marked the first time any country has had three clubs in the top five of the
European champions AC Milan moved up to sixth place while runners-up Liverpool moved two
places up to eighth. Italian champions Internazionale moved down two places to 9th while
Bayern Munich moved up a spot to seventh. Juventus' relegation into Serie B saw them move
nine places down to 13th place.
