Sportico, a sports business website, has valued Liverpool Football Club at $4.7bn (roughly £3.8bn) – making them the second most valuable club in the Premier League behind Manchester United who are valued at $5.95bn.
According to Sportico, Liverpool are a more valuable asset ahead of the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.
English Premier League clubs generated more than $7 billion in revenue last season as fans returned to the stands after the absense of fans during the pandemic. As you would imagine, the largest valuations are reserved for the teams fighting at the top of the league, with the Big 6 all worth at least $3 billion each.
With this in mind, Inner Circle Sports co-founder Steve Horowitz – an advisor of FSG, when they purchased Liverpool 13 years ago – believes that Liverpool may still be an attractive option for American investors looking to get involved in the Premier League.
“With an EPL club, you own a team in the best and most watched football league in the world’s favourite sport” Horowitz told Sportico. “It is the attraction for American investors and those from every corner of the globe.”
Earlier this year Liverpool posted record revenues of over €700M. Deloitte revealed that only Real Madrid and Manchester City generated more revenue in world football.
Liverpool had long runs in major competitions that contributed to the record revenue generated.
