    According to Forbes Magazine, Barcelona Fc of Spain is the world's most valuable football club. Barcelona overthrows their Spanish counterpart, Real Madrid. Real Madrid has been the highest-ranking club five times in the past sixteen years, with Man Utd dominating eleven times in that same period.

    Bayern Munich of Germany closely follows Real Madrid, as the only German team in the top ten. While the EPL witnessed six of her teams in the top ten. Juventus, surprisingly missed out of the top ten, while PSG makes the top ten for the first time.

    According to Mike Ozanian, who compiled the list for Forbes, “the world’s 20 most valuable soccer teams are worth an average of $2.28 billion (£1.66bn) apiece, an increase of 30% from two years ago, the last time we published the ranking,”

    “The jump comes despite a decline in revenue caused by limited attendance during the pandemic, with buyers focused on what they see as still untapped revenue potential in the sport’s massive global following.

    “Average revenue for the 20 teams was $441 million (£321m) for the 2019-20 season, down 9.6% from 2017-18, while average operating income fell by 70% over the period to $23 million (£17m).

    "The pain is far from over, with a worsening decline in match-day revenue during the current season as most of the teams in Europe’s top leagues still permit few fans to attend games.”
