Real Madrid and Barca Dominate Deloitte Money League Top 20

A new Deloitte report showed that the combined revenues of Europe’s top 20 clubs exceeded 4bn euros (£3.8bn) for the first time in the 2009-10 season, and that three La Liga clubs made its Top 20 list.

Real Madrid ans continue to dominate the Money League, while is ranked 17th. Here is a snapshot about what Deloitte said about the three Spanish clubs.

Real Madrid
Revenues of €438.6m (£359.1m) cement Los Blancos’ position at the top of the Money League for the sixth consecutive year. Real remains the only club to surpass €400m in revenue, doing so for the second successive season. Whilst the 2009/10 season saw again outperformed on the pitch by Barcelona, who beat them to the league title for a second successive year, in revenue terms Real Madrid were over €40m (£33m) ahead of their Spanish rivals.

Barcelona’s unprecedented on-pitch success in 2008/09 was continued into 2009/10, a season in which the club won La Liga and the Spanish Supercopa. This was complemented by reaching the semi-final of the UEFA and being crowned FIFA Club champions in December 2009.

Atletico Madrid
Club Atlético de Madrid’s performance in European competitions in 2009/10 is sufficient to earn the club its highest position in the Money League since they were placed 12th in our very first edition, which covered the 1996/97 season.
