Fan power Football Money League
Whilst there are a number of non-financial methods that can be used to determine a clubs' relative size - including measures of attendance, fanbase, broadcast audience, or on-pitch success - we focus on clubs' ability to generate revenue from day to day football operations. We therefore rank clubs based on the money coming in. We do not consider a club's budget for outgoings, what someone might pay to buy or invest in a club or owner wealth.
The huge fan interest in both domestic and international markets underpin the brand strength of football's very top clubs and means there is limited movement in positions at the top of the Money League. For the fourth successive year, the clubs comprising the top six remain the same with no movement amongst these six for the last three years.
