The Premier League’s Top 5 Most Valuable clubs

The Premier League’s Top 5 Most Valuable clubs

With Chelsea having been sold to new owners in the past year and Manchester United and Liverpool seemingly up for sale, there has been a great deal of discussion regarding the business valuation of Premier League teams.

This week, the sport business publication Sportico weighed in by ranking each Premier League club according to their overall value.

They derived their figures using a variety of metrics, including brand strength, on-field performance, terms of facility lease, overall debt burden, predicted future financial performance, and historical sales of other football clubs.

5) Chelsea – £2.8 Billion

In terms of the price that Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital paid for the Blues last year, Twp figures have been made public.

It is estimated that the Blues cost between £2.5 and £4.25 billion, depending on the source you consult.

With their estimate, Sportico has clearly erred on the side of caution. It is still a substantial sum, but it only ranks them as the fifth most valuable Premier League team.

4) Arsenal – £2.91 Billion

Clearly, Arsenal’s success on the field this season has helped them gain ground on Chelsea.

Since the last table was published in 2021, they have moved up one position on Sportico’s list.

With the addition of Champions League revenue for the upcoming season, Arsenal’s value will only increase in the coming months and years.

3) Manchester City – £3.57 Billion

While Forbes ranked the Premier League champions at the top of their rich list based on their recent revenue, Sportico ranked them third because they took into account other factors.

It should also be noted that they have not accounted for the total value of the City Football Group in their calculations.

The Group currently owns a total of eleven football teams (including City), so if you included them in the valuation, they would easily come out on top.

2) Liverpool – £3.8 Billion

The Reds have reached three of the last five Champions League finals, resulting in a large amount of prize money over the past few years.

The club’s assets have increased in value as a result of Fenway Sports Group’s plan to expand Anfield’s seating capacity to more than 60,000.

However, Liverpool’s value could decrease if they fail to finish in the top four this season, as expected.

1) Manchester United – £4.8 Billion

Despite the fact that the Red Devils have not been particularly successful on the field over the past decade, their brand still carries considerable weight.

United remains the only club listed on the stock exchange, and its stadium is the largest of any club (74,000).

The team’s revival under manager Erik ten Hag will likely increase the club’s revenue, making it more appealing to potential buyers.
