Man City’s Revenue First Among European Domestic Champs

  • Manchester City generated revenue of $785 million.
  • Real Madrid brought in the second most of the eight European domestic soccer champions.

Manchester City finished first in the 2021-22 season in more ways than one.

The Premier League champions generated the most revenue of the season’s eight European domestic soccer champions with $785 million, according to a Football Benchmark study.

City’s revenue increased 13% year-over-year, topping UEFA Champions League winner Real Madrid’s $767 million — a 12% year-over-year increase. 

France’s Paris Saint-Germain generated the third-highest revenue at $720 million and the highest matchday revenue at $141 million — but also had a record net loss of $396 million. 

  • PSG earned the highest commercial income among European teams at $429 million.
  • It also had the highest staff costs ever reported by a club at $782 million.

After Germany’s Bayern Munich, which brought in $674 million in revenue, figures take a dip. 

Serie A winner AC Milan generated $289 million in revenue, a 16% year-over-year increase. Despite a 51% year-over-year increase, Dutch club Ajax brought in just $203 million. Revenue for Portugal’s Porto dropped 6% year-over-year to $155 million, while Turkey’s Trabzonspor finished with $63.4 million in revenue.

City’s Second Place

Based on the estimated combined net worth of its owners ($22 billion), City is the second-richest club in the English Premier League.

Newcastle United, which was taken over in 2021 by a consortium comprising Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, PCP Capital Partners, and the Reuben Brothers, came in first with an estimated combined net worth of $620 billion.
