Arsenal rake in more money than Real, Barcelona AND Manchester United

LONDON – Arsenal are generating more money on match-days than any club in the world — and have overtaken Chelsea as the top financial power in London for the first time in six years, according to figures released by Deloitte.

The extra revenue brought in by their 61,000-seater Emirates Stadium, opened in 2006, is enabling them to lead Europe’s biggest clubs in money generated for each home game.

They made £101.84million last year, narrowly ahead of Real Madrid, who made £100.12m from games at the Bernabeu, and Barcelona, with a total of £90.17m made from the Nou Camp.

Arsenal will be celebrating after raking in over £100m from home games, more than any other club in Europe

Manchester United are next on the list, generating £87.96m from Old Trafford while Chelsea are sixth with £71.84m made from Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool (£57.85m), Manchester City (£43.98m) and Tottenham (£41.83m) make it into the top 10 in eighth, ninth and 10th respectively.

The £30m extra Arsenal made on Chelsea has seen them leap ahead of their rivals in Deloitte’s Football Money League for the first time since 2010.

Dan Jones, a partner at Deloitte, said: ‘Chelsea won the Premier League in 2014/15 but off-pitch have been usurped by Arsenal as the top London club in the Money League for the first time since 2009/10, swapping places between seventh and eighth position.

‘Arsenal benefitted from the first year of its new kit sponsorship deal with Puma to drive impressive commercial revenue growth of 34 per cent, and its match-day revenue was the highest of any club in the Money League, and nearly £30m greater than Chelsea’s.’ – Daily Mail
