For the first time in footballing history, a club’s annual revenue has gone in excess of 800 million euros, as football proves yet again that it remains unaffected by the economic downturn. A report by Deloitte looked at the 20 richest football clubs in Europe, and found that their net revenues for the 2018-19 season were a staggering 9.3 billion euros. This marks an 11 per cent increase over the previous August-May calendar.

A large part of the increase is down to television rights, while commercial revenues and match-day earnings also contributed to clubs’ wealth. Forty-four per cent of clubs’ revenue comes from broadcast revenue, a total of 575 million euros. In contrast, match tickets and passes account for 51 million euros (16 per cent).

On-Field Banter Not Welcome

10 Dec, 2019
Passions run high on the field of play. Disagreements often lead to physical confrontations. But such skirmishes usually happen between players from opposing sides. Here are a few footballers who got a bad rap for clashing with teammates.Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez recently sparred like schoolboys. The pressures and dynamics of team sport are such that teammates sometimes turn enemies.Merely days after the duo clashed on the field during Manchester City’s trip to Anfield, the Liverpool defender was attacked by Sterling when they ran into each other at the canteen at St George’s Park, the England national team’s training complex. Gomez and Sterling were once teammates at Liverpool, and now share a dressing room when on international duty. Sterling reportedly refused to shake hands with Gomez at the canteen, and instead lunged at the latter in attempt to get him in a headlock. Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson was called on to broker a truce.
