Liverpool valued at over $5billion in new study

Liverpool has been named one of the five most valuable football clubs in the world, in a new study by sports website, Sportico, with an estimated value of $5.11billion.

The latest valuation places the Reds 4th on the list of most valuable clubs, behind only Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Manchester United, and is another example of the excellent work carried out by the club's commercial department.

Sports business website, Sportico, has released their latest list of the world's most valuable football clubs, with Liverpool amongst the top 5, with an estimated value of $5.11billion.

The Reds sit fourth on the list, comfortably ahead of Bayern Munich in fifth spot ($4.8billion), but some way behind the top three of Manchester United ($6.2billion), Real Madrid ($6.06billion), and Barcelona($5.28bilion).  Manchester United's valuation is particularly baffling, as the club has lurched from one disaster to another over the last ten years, yet still seems to find a way to become more valuable.  That may change next season though, as the club looks set to miss out on European football altogether, after last week's 4 - 0 humiliation at Crystal Palace.

In total, the 50 most valuable football teams have a net worth of nearly $80billion!

The Premier League is well represented (as you would expect), with Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelsea all in the top 10, but the MLS is named as the most valuable league, with 20 of the top 50 clubs playing in the United States.

That may seem surprising, but one reason for this could be that there is only one league in the United States (the MLS). With no relegation to a lower league, clubs and owners know there is no threat to their income levels, unlike in Europe, where being relegated can seriously damage a club's finances and valuation.

One thing the study highlights is the excellent work being carried out by Liverpool's Commercial Department, with on-field success being matched by several high-profile sponsorship deals in recent years.  When added to the recent stadium expansions and upgrades, it is easy to see why Liverpool is so highly valued at the present time.

Top 10 Richest clubs in the world

  1. Manchester United - £4,96billion
  2. Real Madrid - £4.85billion
  3. Barcelona - £4.22billion
  4. Liverpool - £4.09billion
  5. Bayern Munich - £3.84billion
  6. Manchester City - £3.84billion
  7. Paris Saint-Germain - £3.24billion
  8. Arsenal - £3.13billion
  9. Tottenham Hotspur - £2.79billion
  10. Chelsea - £2.78billion

How were the values calculated?

Sportico looked at several factors when determining a club's value, including analysing each club's annual accounts, to determine their broadcast, commercial, and matchday revenue. They also looked at squad value, and a club's property, including the stadium and other facilities.
