Bayern Munich stay 4th in Football Money League

Bayern Munich remains in 4th place in the 2018 edition of Deloitte’s Football Money League and earn more commercial revenue than any other club.

The German club had a total of €587.8m in 2017.

For the second year in a row, Manchester United came out on top with €676.3m, followed by Real Madrid (€674.6m) and Barcelona (€648.3m).

Bayern maintained their 4th place spot despite a slight decline in their total revenue (0.7%), down from €592m in 2016.

The club’s revenue sources seem at odds with the trends seen in the rest of the Money League, with their commercial revenue coming out at 48% of their total earnings and their broadcast revenue at 33%. Most other clubs have seen increased broadcast revenue at the expense of commercial revenue which is 38% on average elsewhere in the Money League.

The Bundesliga is set to negotiate a new four-year broadcasting deal this year, and this should result in an increase in broadcast revenues for its clubs going forward.
