Real Madrid Crowned World's Most Valuable Football Club

Posted : 24 May 2024

Real Madrid have been named the world's most valuable football club in Forbes' latest annual list, surpassing Manchester United, Barcelona, Liverpool, and Manchester City. The esteemed business magazine valued Real Madrid at $6.6 billion, narrowly edging out Manchester United, which was assessed at $6.55 billion.


Despite facing financial challenges, Barcelona secured the third spot with a valuation of $5.6 billion, surpassing Liverpool's $5.37 billion. This marks the third consecutive year and the eighth time in eleven years that Real Madrid has topped Forbes' list of the most valuable football clubs.


Forbes' rankings are based on the concept of "enterprise value," which considers a club's market value, debt, and liquid assets, using data from the accounting firm Deloitte. Real Madrid's impressive $873 million revenue in the 2022-23 season, the highest of any club on the list, played a significant role in their top ranking. This revenue was generated from broadcasting, commercial deals, and matchday income, reflecting the club's robust financial performance.


The list also highlights the dominance of Premier League clubs, with twelve out of the thirty teams coming from England's top tier, including Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal in the top ten. Atlético Madrid, valued at $1.3 billion, is the only other LaLiga team in the top 30, ranked 13th.


Real Madrid's financial strength has been bolstered by their recent successes in the Champions League, winning the competition five times since 2014 and making it to the final again this year, where they will face Borussia Dortmund on June 1.


Forbes noted that the average value of teams on their list has increased by 5.1% to $2.3 billion, despite a challenging market for broadcast rights in leagues like the Bundesliga, Serie A, and Ligue 1.
