Valencia CF 19th richest football club in 2010/11

Deloitte released their football money league results and Valencia CF is 19th on the list of the most richest clubs in 2010/11.

Real Madrid head the Money League for the seventh successive year and require one more year in top position in order to match the dominance of Manchester United’s during the first eight years of the Money League. FC Barcelona complete a Spanish one-two for the third successive year, whilst the top six positions remain unchanged.

German club Schalke’s run to the semi-finals of the Champions League has allowed the club to claim a top ten position for the first time, climbing six places. We expect Manchester City to claim a top ten position in the next edition of the Money League. England retains the largest representation from any single country with six clubs, with the other 14 clubs from the other ‘big five’ European leagues. There are three new entries into this year’s top 20 in Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Napoli.
