Liverpool’s revenue growth has culminated with the club amassing the third-highest revenue in the English top-flight behind Manchester United and Manchester City respectively.
This comes courtesy of financial blogger, Swiss Ramble, who dissected the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Premier League outfits.
As a result, #LFC £487m revenue is the third highest in England, within touching distance of #MUFC £494m, but nearly £100m below #MCFC £570m. There is then a fair sized gap to the following clubs: #CFC £435m, #THFC £360m, #AFC £328m and #LCFC £226m. pic.twitter.com/GnplLyjjMa

It’s further evidence of how well-run the Merseysiders have become following FSG’s takeover, with the side having enjoyed some superb growth in the commercial sector.

Given the lack of comparative funding, it’s remarkable that we’ve managed the keep the pace as far as such income is concerned, with shrewd transfers making a huge impact on the pitch.
If we can continue to identify the right targets at the right time – Luis Diaz being a recent example of our recruitment team’s sound eye – coupled with our business off the pitch, there’s no reason why we can’t continue to enjoy success and compete with the financial heavy-hitters of England and beyond.
