For the 2015/16 season, Liverpool’s incoming revenue was the ninth largest of any football club in the world, but only the fifth biggest in the Premier League – showing the power of our league.
That’s according to the Deloitte Football Money League Table, publicised by Sky Sports.
We brought home £302m, an increase of roughly £4m from the season previous where we competed in the Champions League.

The fact we still increased revenue despite not being in Europe’s elite competition shows how much we made from our trip to the Europa League final, as well as our multiple commercial deals.
We hope the number to significantly rise again for 2016/17 due to our increased stadium capacity, and hopefully again in 2017/18 where we could be back in the Champions League…
Right now, Manchester United are the richest club in the world in terms of revenue, ahead of both Spanish giants, Bayern Munich and their rivals Manchester City.
Liverpool are on the cusp of the world’s elite financially, but that hasn’t been shown by our spending in the transfer market, as we’ve broken even over the last few windows.
If Klopp wants a player though, the money is there to spend – although we’re unlikely to do any business this January.
