City Overtake United

Manchester City overtook Manchester United for revenue for the first time in their history last season.

City recorded a total operating revenue of €644 million, with a little over half being attributed to broadcasting income. This puts their revenue up 17 per cent from the previous year.

Manchester United totalled €557 million in revenue, €87 million less than City.

In the European Champions Report 2022 — compiled by KPMG — City were also revealed to have a revenue that was 10 times more than that of Besiktas and Sporting CP.

City's broadcasting revenue rose to €335.5 million while their commercial income hit €307.9 million.

This makes City the only league champions to register both annual growth in revenue, but also surpass their total income of the last pre-COVID-19 season which was 2018-19.

City's enterprise value also grew to €2,170 million, making them the sixth most valuable club in the world.

The emerging power has displaced the former great power.

According to the Thucydides Trap there should have been a battle but Manchester has proved Graham Allison's theory wrong.

They need to eclipse Everton first.

In terms of total trophies won, we eclipsed Everton a few years ago.

Whereas since 2013 United have won the same number of PL titles as Everton, and don't look likely to win one anytime soon. Not a team others fear to face any more than they would Everton.

Given the current state of United, it will probably require the Glazers selling up and being bought out by a multi billionaire who will need to invest in order to get the club winning the league again.
