Deloitte have released its annual report and Liverpool’s finances are up an incredible 27% since the previous year.
The 2022 Deloitte money league report shows that Liverpool’s revenue has increased by €97m compared to pre-pandemic levels in 2018/2019.
Liverpool’s revenue has overtaken Manchester United for the first time ever. The club generated a whopping €701.7M in 2022, up four places on the list to third from seventh last year. In 2021 Liverpool’s revenue was €550.4M.
Only two clubs in world football generated more revenue. Manchester City (€731M) and Real Madrid (€713.8M). Liverpool were only one of five clubs to generate match-day revenues of over €100M.
The report states:
“Liverpool were the biggest movers among the consistent clubs included in this and last year’s edition of the Money League.
“The club rose four places (from 7th to 3rd) to achieve its highest position in Money League history, and in doing so overtook Manchester United for the first time, on the back of a run to the UEFA Champions League Final 2022.
“It was also only one of five clubs to report over €100m in matchday revenue, which was the first time the club had done so, as fans returned to football stadia in their masses.
“This is expected to increase further in coming years, with the expansion of the Anfield Road Stand due to be completed prior to the 2023/24 season.”
