|Manchester City: the richest football club 2022|
Manchester City (Man City) was named the richest football club according to the 2022 Deloitte Football Money League. The Citizens managed to become the club with the highest income. Despite being hit by the financial crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Man City was still able to earn 644.9 million euros or around Rp. 10.17 trillion over the past year. The leader of the 2021/2022 Premier League standings outperformed several other elite European clubs. Man City is ahead of Real Madrid who is in second place with an income of 640.7 million euros or around Rp. 10.11 trillion.
While in third place is Bayern Munich. Man City's income is not always good. The Covid-19 outbreak is enough to drain club accounts. However, they can handle it well. Man City's revenue has remained stable or even increased thanks to the broadcasting rights deal. That's why Pep Guardiola's team has become the richest club in the world as a result of its revenue this year.
On the other hand, Barcelona is in the spotlight because it dropped from first position to fourth. This is the worst position occupied by one of the Spanish League giants since 2013/2014.
Chelsea's bad record is also experienced. The team affected by Roman Abramovich's sanctions dropped to eighth place with revenues of 433.5 million euros or equivalent to Rp. 7.7 trillion. The Deloitte Football Money League ranks them based on revenue from football operations. It is calculated annually by accounting firm Deloitte and released in early February each year.
