Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is the club with the greatest financial power in world football according to the Soccerex Football Finance 100, the annual report from football business experts Soccerex, which uses bespoke methodology to evaluate and rank the world’s top 100 clubs according to their finances.
The 2020 edition sees the Parisian club overtake Manchester City for the first time in the report’s three-year history with a Football Finance Index (FFI) score of 5.318, which factors in five key financial variables – playing assets, tangible assets, cash in the bank, potential owner investment and net debt. Manchester City, who have topped all previous rankings, were second with an FFI score of 5.197.
The position of both clubs at the top of the report stems largely from the vast financial resources of their respective Middle Eastern owners, which in both cases has allowed them to amass immensely valuable playing squads – both total over €1bn in combined value – and has transformed the clubs’ fortunes, turning them into leading players amongst the global elite.
