FC Barcelona Tops Manchester United And Real Madrid In Sponsorship Earnings

27/6/2018



FC Barcelona tops Real Madrid and Manchester United in Sponsorship earnings in the last one year, according to Forbes recent research.

The Spanish giants have been making $247 million per season through sponsors, $45m more than second-placed Manchester United and $47m more than third-placed Real Madrid. Barca had their earning increased by $15m, while United and Madrid have seen a drop of $12m and $16m respectively.

This happened when they changed the space in front of their shirts to the highest bidders, changing from one to another in a bid to compete financially with their rivals. Qatar Foundation replaced Unicef – Barca had worn the non-profit on the front of their shirt since 2006, then Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten replaced Qatar Airways as the club’s principle shirt sponsor.
