The football industry is well-positioned for strong revenue growth in the coming years, according to Deloitte’s latest report “Annual Review of Football Finance 2022”. The report states that football revenue is expected to experience a compound annual growth rate of 6%, reaching approximately USD 30 billion per year between 2021 and 2024.
The growth of the football industry is being fueled not only by existing revenue streams, but also by the increasing popularity of the sport in new markets, as well as rising revenues from broadcasting rights and advertising deals.
“The football industry is an essential component of both global culture and the economy,” notes Fredi Bobic, soccer manager and shareholder of LIBERO Capital AG. “The positive growth of the football industry, particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, is a promising development for the entire sports industry. It is encouraging to see the sport evolve and new markets emerge.”
