Liverpool fans were delighted to discover that their club’s elevated status after their side recorded a £77.9m increase in revenue. in the latest edition of the Deloitte Football Money League.
The rankings focus on the club’s ability to generate revenue from matchday sales, broadcast rights and commercial sources, as per Forbes. Following the 2018/19 campaign, the Reds sit seventh in the money tree while Barcelona and Real Madrid sit at the top of the listings. Manchester United lead the way for the Premier League sides in 3rd while their local neighbours Manchester City sit one place ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side in sixth.
Deloitte have published their latest report on Europe’s top clubs. Last season Liverpool generated £533M, approx £5M less than City (£50M previous season). Liverpool could overtake Man Utd (£627.1M) for the 1st time in 23 yrs (since Deliotte money table) if Utd miss out on top 4.

While Liverpool moved closer to their Premier League rivals City, Deloitte suggested a breakthrough into the top remains possible, but unrealistic due to the Citizens’ new commercial deals (quoted by This is Anfield). The Reds recently agreed a record kit deal with Nike which starts on 1st June (as per the Liverpool Echo), while any further success in domestic and European competitions will only strengthen the Reds’ position in the rankings.
