The 33rd edition of Deloitte’s Annual Review of Football Finance, ‘Football Division’, is now available to download here.

The report analyses the business and finances of European professional football during the 2022/23 season, a period marked by the uniquely timed 2022 FIFA World Cup and shaped by an evolving regulatory landscape, and provides an outlook for the future of the industry.
Key findings from this year’s report include:

• The European football market soared once more by 16% in the 2022/23 season to a new height of €35.3 billion.
• Clubs in the ‘big five’ European leagues generated aggregate revenue of €19.6 billion, up 14% on the previous season, and are forecast to reach c.€21 billion in 2024/25.
• Average Premier League club revenues rose by 11% to surpass £300m for the first time.
• With the full return of fans to stadia in Germany and Italy, Bundesliga and Serie A clubs reported the largest proportional revenue growth over the previous season (22% each).
• The ‘Lionesses lift’, following the team’s historic triumph at UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, contributed to a 50% rise in Women’s Super League club revenues.
Analysis from the Deloitte Sports Business Group highlights that while football is growing into a more globally-connected game, this is bringing new challenges for the industry to overcome. From regulation and governance, to promoting competitive balance, there’s a need for leaders across the game to provide a united front in order to build a future for European football that fans, players and industry stakeholders can be excited for.
