Chelsea have once again been named as one of the richest football clubs in the world. Russian owner, Roman Abramovich put his own money into the Blues last season but after returning to the Champions League the west London club could be set for big things under Frank Lampard.
According to the latest Deloitte Money League report, the Blues had revenue of £452.2million in 2018/19. The numbers make them the ninth richest club in the world, not the top club in London. Tottenham Hotspur claimed that title last season by reaching the final of the Champions League.
Chelsea’s revenue has more than doubled over the last decade going from £206.4m in 2008/09 to the figure announced in the report.
Back in 2008/09, Chelsea were the fifth richest club in the world, a position they held up to the 2011/12 campaign, but a drop in form over the recent years has seen their position change, and they are now the fifth richest club in England, nevermind the world.
As always, Manchester United lead the charts of being the richest club in England with a turnover of £627.1m. Manchester City has the second-highest turnover in England (£538.2m) followed by Liverpool (£533m) and Tottenham (£459.3m).
To no one surprise, Liverpool's revenue has grown 189 percent over the past decade, while Tottenham’s revenue has grown a whopping 283 percent. Barcelona tops the list with a turnover of £741.1 million while Real Madrid in second place with a turnover of £667.5 million.
