Manchester United Named as the World’s Most Valuable Club
KPMG has named Manchester United as the world’s most valuable football club, becoming the first ever club to have an enterprise value of over €3 billion.
The Dutch auditors have devised an algorithm which takes in not only a club’s revenue, but is a combination of five three factors: profitability, popularity, sporting potential, broadcasting rights and stadium ownership. The combination of all these factors produces the Enterprise Value (EV).
