8 Richest Football Clubs In England

Every year Deloitte release their Football Money League which documents the eye-watering revenue generated by the richest football clubs on the planet, and more often than not a good chunk of them are English, so we’ve done our league of the richest football clubs in England.

PledgeSports have helped many teams and clubs fundraise for football, but the teams we have worked with are on the opposite end of the scale to the ten listed below.
