Liverpool retain ninth position with a slight £5.1million (3%) increase in revenue to £188.7million. The 2011/12 campaign was the third successive season in which the Reds failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. While the club benefited from certain new commercial deals in 2011/12, including the new Warrior kit deal, a turnaround in on-pitch fortunes, particularly qualifying for the Champions League, is key in order for the club to climb back up the Money League in the short-term. The redevelopment of Anfield would help increase matchday revenues in the medium to longer term. Despite a 2% decrease in revenue to £80.5m in 2011/12, Everton maintained their top 30 position in the Money League, ranking the club as the eighth highest revenue-generating club in England.
The new Premier League TV deal could see up to half of the 20 clubs on Deloitte’s list hail from England in the years to come, with sides on the fringes such as the Blues set to see their revenues boosted. The order of the top six remains exactly the same with Spanish champions Real Madrid at number one with revenue for the 2011/12 season of £414.7million (down from £433million the year before). Arch rivals Barcelona are second with a revenue of £390.8million – reduced from £407million – followed by Manchester United £320.3million (£331.4million); Bayern Munich £298.1million (£290.3million); Chelsea £261million (228.6million); and Arsenal £234.9million (£226.8million). Manchester City leap from 12th to seventh place. Related stories From around the web Related Tags
