Although Real Madrid may have won the famous El Classico 2-1 against FC Barcelona, it was the Blaugrana who topped the Forbes’ Football Rich List.

Real Madrid topped the rankings two years ago but they find themselves gazing up at FC Barcelona who has a valuation of $4.76 billion (£3.46bn).

Premier League’s conventional top 6 make up the top 10, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham all featuring.

The world’s 20 most valuable soccer teams are worth an average of $2.28 billion (£1.66bn) apiece, an increase of 30% from two years ago, the last time we published the ranking,” Forbes’ Ozanian said. “The jump comes despite a decline in revenue caused by limited attendance during the pandemic, with buyers focused on what they see as still untapped revenue potential in the sport’s massive global following.

“Average revenue for the 20 teams was $441 million (£321m) for the 2019-20 season, down 9.6% from 2017-18, while average operating income fell by 70% over the period to $23 million (£17m).

“The pain is far from over, with a worsening decline in match-day revenue during the current season as most of the teams in Europe’s top leagues still permit few fans to attend games.”
