Real Madrid retain world’s richest club status

first_imgRelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Nigeria records new COVID-19 infections, more deaths as figures rise to 57,242 Real Madrid are still the most valuable club in the world, ahead of Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, according to latest figures in the KPMG Football Benchmark 2020 club evaluation report that looks at the 50 elite clubs in European leagues.The figures are calculated from data up to five months ago, so do not take into account the affect of the coronavirus pandemic. While KPMG head of global sports Andrea Sartori acknowledged that the pandemic will have undoubtedly affected club values, “the immediate impact cannot yet be quantified. While we have witnessed a significant drop in share prices of football clubs listed on various stock exchanges since the outbreak of the crisis, there has been a slight recovery recently with the hope of a restart of the current season in most countries.”KPMG uses its own formulas to analyse what it calls club enterprise values.While the top of the ranking of clubs remains relatively unchanged, there are some notable changes.Barca leapfrogged Bayern to return to third spot, while Liverpool move up two places to fifth and PSG similarly moved up two places to get into the top 10 for the first time at ninth.Arsenal continued their relative demise dropping two places to 10th and notably below their north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur who move into 8th spot and have shown a 103 per cent growth over the four year period, compared to Arsenal’s 2 per cent. With Juventus dropping down, for the first time, there was no Serie A club in the top 10.Where Juve do buck the trend is in social media numbers where the report points to a four-year growth of 289 per cent in total followers and the fourth spot in terms of total social media followers among the top 32 clubs.“Over the five years of our analysis, Real Madrid CF managed to retain their leadership primarily due to the rewards of their three UEFA Champions League trophies in a row, and a 41% aggregate growth in commercial revenue. After three years on top, Manchester United FC stayed up on the podium thanks to the brand’s appeal and an impressive cumulative EBIT of €338 million. FC Barcelona’s 5-year trend reveals a 50% growth in total operating revenues, while commercial activities became their most successful revenue stream, resulting in 52% growth from 2016,” said Sartori.Tags: Andrea SartoriBayern MunichCoronavirusFC BarcelonaKPMG Football Benchmark 2020Manchester UnitedReal Madridlast_img read more

O’Neill to give youth a chance

Press Association Striker Kyle Lafferty and defender Chris Baird are suspended for the next World Cup qualifier against Russia next month and have not travelled here, giving the squad a more youthful look than usual. O’Neill said: “We can only use six substitutions, and we only have 18 outfield players with us as well. We’ll look at the scenario and see how the game develops but if there’s an opportunity to get players game time we’ll obviously take that.” He added: “The most important thing when you come into international football is that your confidence is high and you believe you can adapt and play at this level. “It’s always a psychological thing to go and play international football as well. Certainly those players are all in very good form for their clubs and they’ll be keen to show they’re capable of doing that at international level.” Lafferty’s spot up front is likely to be particularly fiercely contested, with Billy McKay, Adam McGurk, Will Grigg and Josh Magennis all vying to stake a claim. Inverness’ McKay looks to be in pole position as the top scorer in the Scottish Premier League this season, while fellow uncapped players McGurk, goalkeeper Gerard Doherty and defender Alex Bruce will all hope to be given an opportunity at some point. As well as being a chance to try out players ahead of the Russia game, O’Neill is also hoping Wednesday night’s match will provide his first win as manager at the eighth attempt. There have been decent results, notably a draw in Portugal in a World Cup qualifier, but there have also been draws against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan that have probably ended their hopes of reaching the finals in Brazil. Captain Steven Davis insists progress has been made under the former Shamrock Rovers boss, saying: “There’s a good feeling about the squad, everybody enjoys meeting up and everybody gets on well. It’s nice to get a break away from your club as well. It’s nice to see some younger players coming into the squad and getting their chance to stake a claim.” Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill hopes his young players will take their chance to shine in Wednesday night’s friendly against Malta at Ta’qali National Stadium. read more
