The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

Real Madrid is foot­ball's big­gest mon­ey­maker for the 11th straight year, while Bay­ern Mu­nich dropped to its low­est po­si­tion in eight years.

Madrid's rev­enue of 577 mil­lion euros ($628 mil­lion) in 2014-15 kept it top of the Foot­ball Money League com­piled by ac­coun­tancy firm Deloitte. "The planned re­de­vel­op­ment of the San­ti­ago Bern­abeu will help to con­tinue the growth in match­day in­come in the com­ing years," said Dan Jones, a part­ner in the Deloitte sports busi­ness divi­sion. The rev­enue of the world's top 20 clubs, which are all Euro­pean and in­clude nine from the Premier League, grew 8 per cent year-to-year to 6.6b euros.
