Newcastle United In Deloitte Rich Club Top 25
The Deloitte report which was released today (31st May), lists the world’s football clubs in terms of revenue for the season 2010/11.
The next report should undoubtedly see Newcastle move up again but as was shown in previous seasons, United’s capacity for generating money should make them a permanent fixture in the top twenty revenue generating clubs. Even in season where Newcastle were in the bottom half of the Premier League they used to stick out like a sore thumb, usually the only top 20 club without European football and of course no success on the pitch in terms of trophies.
These latest Deloitte figures (all figures in Euros) have Real Madrid (479.5m) and Barcelona (367m) heading things up at the top but then English clubs really take over as they fill third (Man.U. 321.4m), fifth (Arsenal 251.1m), sixth (Chelsea 249.8m), ninth (Liverpool 203.3m), eleventh (Spurs 181m) and twelfth (Man.City 169.6m).
The fact though that Aston Villa sneak in a place ahead of Newcastle in twenty fourth (99.3m) suggests strongly to me that there is major growth possible in the commercial revenue at Newcastle United.
