Real Madrid is the richest club

Spanish football club Real Madrid are officially the world's richest club for the third consecutive year.

Deloitte's Football Money League, which is based on revenues generated during 2006/7, shows the same group of clubs are still monopolising the rich list, with only one change in the top 10 from the previous year.

According to the figures from Deloitte, which take into account tickets sales, merchandising, and broadcasting contracts, but not transfers and profitability, Real Madrid made £236.2m revenue during the 2006/7 season, up from £202m the year before.

The main reason Real Madrid may have retained their crown as the world's wealthiest club, was probably down to the club's success during the season. They clinched the Spanish championship, and also had David Beckham in the team, which probably helped with merchandising. Real Madrid also have a very lucrative TV deal, and their stadium, the Bernabeu, is pretty much sold out for every game.

Second in the rich league was English club Manchester United with £212.1m, and Spanish club Barcelona were in third place with £195.3m.
