Thread on how much money clubs have already received after the Champions League 2022/23 group stage. Also includes estimates for English clubs in Europa League and Europa Conference League. Some assumptions made about the TV pool, but the figures should be reasonably accurate.
The Champions League accounts for the lion’s share of UEFA revenue with its €2.032 bln being nearly 3 times as much as the Europa League and Europa Conference combined (€700m). The difference is particularly stark in the UEFA coefficient (based on 10-year rankings).
Champions League overall prize money is 3.6 times the Europa League and 5.5 times the Europa Conference, but this varies by round. In general, the difference becomes smaller the further a club progresses, e.g. last 16 it’s 8x and 16x, while for the winners it’s only 2.3x and 4x.

Sebastian Kehl:

"That was far too little of everything, and that's what our players heard today. It was clear that there would not be a game with many chances, Union has not conceded six goals for nothing."


"We often make it too easy for such opponents. We scored both goals ourselves, so to speak. [...] The form curve is not exactly pointing upwards. We had an emotional game against Bayern, we were also good in Sevilla, and to be honest, that was all just a few days ago."

"But then there are always games like the one on Sunday. The load is high for many teams. Union had only played on Thursday, we had two days more break and yet they invested more for a long time."

Following Bayern Munich’s imperious start to the season, on the back of 10 Bundesliga titles in a row, I thought it might be interesting to look at their finances, even though it’s been a while since they published their 2020/21 accounts #FCBayern
Despite the significant impact of COVID, #FCBayern “achieved sound financial results”, once again posting a pre-tax profit, though down from €17m to €5m (€2m after tax). Revenue (club definition) fell €54m (8%) from €698m to €644m, largely offset by €42m cut in expenses.
#FCBayern revenue hit by COVID driven reductions in match day, down €59m (83%) to €12m, and commercial, down €15m (4%) to €345m, while transfer income dropped €31m to €33m. Broadcasting rose €51m (25%) to €255m, mainly due to money deferred from extended 2019/20 season.

Wir haben 2 Uhr nachts. Perfekte Zeit für die Spielanalyse von #BVBSVW. Gehen wir rein.

Ich hab mich nur auf die für mich wichtigen Phasen konzentriert, also die erste halbe Stunde + die Zeit nach dem 2:0 vom #BVB.

Werder hat sich von Anfang an (obviously) aufs Kontern fokussiert und sich auch so positioniert. Hier sieht man wie sie, nach Ballgewinn im Mittelfeld sofort umschalten und eine 6v4 Überzahlsituation kreieren können, die aber misslingt.
Werders Anlaufen auf den Dortmunder Spielaufbau lief auch immer gleich ab:

Bittencourt auf der 10 (in diesem Bild ist es Stage, nicht wundern) deckt den jeweils fallenden 8er (Dahoud/Can), Füllkrug/Ducksch decken Schlotti/Hummels.

Heißt: Der Ball muss auf Außen

some #BVB thoughts:
While I'd agree w Nico #Schlotterbeck re SCF being better until 1:1
I think #Terzic had a really good gameplan vs the 442 of #Streich (w man-orientations) in particular vs SCF 2nd line (Grifo-Doan issues defending space,manipulating double 6's man-orientation)
the caveat ofc is how it was EXECUTED by BVB:
-inaccurate passes, Hazard, Dahoud, Hummels, Malen
-failures to execute immediate switch yielding 2v1s (Bellingham)
- or take some risks w passes
- slow rotations hinder optimal progress (Modeste, Hazard)
-chance for Malen after Reus carry,
-Modeste cant hold the Hazard cross,
-Reus runs at defense
-cumulative xT edge in first 15'…

Wie viele #Bundesliga-Vereine haben Verantwortliche für #Nachhaltigkeit, kennen ihren CO2-Fußabdruck und haben ein CO2-Reduktionsziel?
Die Fragen habe ich allen 36 DFL-Klubs gestellt. Hier ein Thread mit allen (Nicht-)Antworten der Vereine. Insgesamt sieht das Ergebnis so aus. Zu sehen ist ein Balken-Diagramm. Überschrift: Nachhaltigke
Zwei Drittel der Vereine in der 1. und 2. #Bundesliga-Vereine kennen ihren CO2-Fußabdruck nicht. Vier haben bereits ein Reduktionsziel. Die DFL hat Nachhaltigkeitskriterien verabschiedet, damit die Zahl steigt. Vielen reicht das Tempo nicht. @sportschau…
Meine Fragen waren:

Beschäftigt Ihr Verein einen Nachhaltigkeitsbeauftragten?
Hat Ihr Verein den CO2-Fußabdruck berechnet?
Hat Ihr Verein spezifisches, messbares und terminiertes Ziel zur Reduktion der CO2-Emissionen?

Hier die Antworten aller Bundesligisten:

UEFA have announced new Financial Sustainability regulations from June 2022. President Aleksander Ceferin explained, “The evolution of the football industry, alongside the inevitable financial effects of the pandemic, has shown the need for wholesale reform and new regulations.”
UEFA director Andrea Traverso noted, “Competitive imbalance cannot be addressed simply by financial regulations. It must be addressed in combination with other measures. This is why we changed the name. The name fair play was interpreted as creating a level playing field.”
Ceferin added, “UEFA’s first financial regulations, introduced in 2010, served their primary purpose.” Now, instead of so-called Financial Fair Play, the focus is on the financial sustainability of clubs with 3 key pillars being monitored: solvency, stability and cost control.

There have been a few analyses of football club debt published recently, which are at best misleading, if not downright incorrect. So it’s once again time to wheel out my explanation of why debt figures should be treated with caution, as there are so many different definitions.
For the purpose of this review I will take the 2020/21 audited accounts of those clubs featuring in the Deloitte Money League (with the exception of Zenit St Petersburg, where I have not managed to source the details).
At the narrowest extreme, we have just bank debt, but the broadest extreme covers total liabilities, which includes all financial obligations, including transfer debt, staff payables, tax liabilities, trade creditors, provisions, accrued expenses and even deferred income.

UEFA has published the revenue distributions for the Champions League and Europa League in the 2020/21 season. Although these are very close to the modelled figures that I have previously provided, I thought some people might like to have the final, official figures.
Unsurprisingly, the two Champions League finalists earned the most with winners #CFC and #runners-up MCFC receiving £105m and £104m respectively, followed by #RealMadrid and #PSG, both £96m, then #FCBayern £81m and #LFC £77m.
Clubs in the Europa League received a lot less with winners #Villarreal getting only £29m, followed by semi-finalists #AFC £26m and #ASRoma £21m, then #THFC £16m. Runners-up #MUFC earned £15m after dropping down from the Champions League, while #LCFC got £14m.

Borussia Dortmund and Marco Rose part company.

CEO Hans-Joachim #Watzke: "This is not an easy day because the mutual appreciation among us was, is and remains great. But after a season which was unsatisfactory for various reasons, we've had to conclude that we haven't made the most of our potential." #BVB
Marco #Rose: "Despite a difficult season with lots of unpredictability, I was convinced we were on the right path. But during our discussion, I got the impression that the total trust of all was no longer there. We've reached a mutual agreement to end our cooperation." #BVB

A year ago 12 clubs announced a European Super League (ESL) before fan protests led to a humiliating climbdown just days later. However, the factors that drove the 12 clubs to this deeply unpopular move largely remain. It’s still all about money: a combination of fear and greed.
There is little doubt that many of the 12 Super League clubs continue to face serious financial problems. To some extent, this helps explain why the “dirty dozen” would seek more revenue, but that certainly does not excuse their horribly ill-conceived plan.
It is somewhat ironic that these clubs lamented the perilous state of their finances while simultaneously claiming that they had all the answers. Their argument that the Super League would somehow benefit the wider football family should also be taken with a large pinch of salt.

Deloitte have published the 25th edition of their annual Football Money League, which ranks the world’s leading football clubs by revenue, this time covering the 2020/21 season. Some thoughts in the following thread.
Deloitte said that the Money League remains “the most contemporary and reliable independent analysis of the top clubs’ relative financial performance”, which is largely true, even though they had to re-issue this year’s report after initially mis-stating #Milan revenue.
Revenue has obviously been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Deloitte estimate that the Money league clubs have missed out on well over €2 bln of revenue over the 2019/20 and 2020/21 season as a result of the pandemic.

🎙 Thomas Meunier on Axel Witsel:

"I wouldn't say he's become unwanted in Dortmund. There are clubs where players are sent back to the B or C core and you don't hear from them anymore. They are given a hard time, etc."


"What I like here at Borussia is that if you are correct with people, people are correct with you.  Axel has always behaved professionally and correctly towards the club. His adventure in Dortmund seems to be coming to an end, [...]"

"Obviously, between us, we discuss his situation. Axel is well aware that he is now 33 years old and that there are guys like Jude Bellingham, Mo Dahoud or Emre Can who play in the same position as him and who are much younger and represent more the future of the club."

This is a must win for #BVB. Rose with Malen and Brandt up front Reinier does indeed get a rare start. Sporting on paper with a 3-4-3 formation. #SCPBVB ImageImage

Just a quick correction on the lineups. Schuls was a late replacement for Guerreiro. #BVB

🎙️ Mats Hummels about the red:

"I have seen footage from the red directly after I have been sent off. I have no idea how this can be a red. I have no idea how a referee on Champions League level decides to give a red for this."

"I didn't believe it when he didn't change his decision. He has decided the game and I think he knows it. After the game he refused to talk due to the cameras, but I'll be talking to him in the dressing room. But we should be talking about the acting from Anthony."
"Anthony even told me, that it wasn't red. But the VAR has to change the decision, especially if he's a professional. And I reckon he is. (...) Anthony is a superb footballer, but he has to learn to be a real sportsmen."

"Borussia Dortmund is currently in pole position to sign Karim Adeyemi, regardless of a move for Erling Haaland."

🎙 Patrick Berger:

"Sebastian Kehl has taken up the matter and recently traveled especially to the Salzburg game against Wolfsburg. There he has met with player's agent Thomas Solomon. There was also talked about concrete figures."

#BVB Image
"[...] The Adeyemi side feels a certain appreciation from Dortmund and has with Bellingham and Co. good examples before eyes, where the journey can go with a BVB change."

EXCL. 🗞 @Blickch

🎙 Gregor Kobel:

"It's a different dimension, I'm now at a top 10 club in the world. But the biggest adjustment is of course the Champions League, the triple load, a game every three days, a lot more traveling - my body doesn't know that yet."

#BVB Image
"But this increased strain is a change I've always looked forward to. That's what football is for, I'm megahappy."

The start of the season:

"It's okay. We could have won even more often and dropped a few points. But we're up there in the Bundesliga, we're doing well in the Champions League and we're in the DFB Cup. So it fits."

Wir schauen in diesem Thread genauer auf die Faschos, die am 9. Oktober Siegfried "SS-Siggi" Borchardt bei einem rechten Aufmarsch gedachten. Auffallend viele #Hooligans und rechte Fußballfans nahmen teil, schließlich war der Tote ebenfalls Hool. #do0910 #nonazisdo #Dortmund
Da wären Thomas Versin (links) und Sascha Rudloff (rechts). Versin kauft gern Drogen am Stadtgarten & verirrt sich auch mal in den Norden, vorallem Richtung Hafen. Rudloff kommt aus #Dortmund Eving und gehörte früher zur #NPD, heute zu Die Rechte. #nonazisdo

Rudloff war mit seinem Zögling Patrick Loewke beim Aufmarsch, der sich eine Weile in der Nachwuchsgruppe der Borussenfront versuchte. Sowohl die Junge als auch die Alte Garde sind heute im Stadion in der Bedeutungslosigkeit versunken. #nonazisdo #Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund 2020/21 accounts cover a season seriously impacted by COVID, when they finished third in the Bundesliga, won the DFB Cup and reached the Champions League quarter-finals. Head coach Lucien Favre was replaced by Marco Rose for 2021/22. Some thoughts follow #BVB
#BVB pre-tax loss widened from €47m to €73m, as revenue dropped €35m (9%) from €379m to €345m and profit on player sales fell €25m from €40m to €15m, partly offset by cutting operating expenses by €31m and net interest payable decreasing €2m.
#BVB €35m revenue fall was due to COVID driven reductions in match operations, down €32m (98%) to €1m, and commercial, down €21m (12%) to €147m. On the other hand, broadcasting rose €17m (10%) to €187m, mainly Champions League money, while other income was up €1m to €10m

Wir müssen über die Aktion von #Kobel gestern in der 5. Spielminute sprechen! Nicht nur der Reflex war stark, sondern auch die Art und Weise, wie er sich auf den Schuss vorbereitet hat.

Kurzer Thread.

#Keeperanalyse #BJKBVB #BVB #UCL
Anstatt nach der Brustvorlage hektisch die Distanz zu verkürzen, behält #Kobel die Nerven. Ein Vorrücken hätte nur seine Reaktionszeit verringert - ohne dabei wirklich Druck auf #Batshuayi auszuüben.

#BJKBVB #BVB #BorussiaDortmund
Mir gefällt zudem die Körpersprache und -spannung von #Kobel. Kein Zappeln oder Springen. Die Arme sind in einer neutralen Haltung, er wirkt fokussiert und absolut Herr der Lage. Das war die Basis für alles was folgte.

Given the importance of wage bills to the likely success of football clubs, I thought that it would be interesting to look at wages for the Big 5 European leagues in the 2019/20 season (the most recently published accounts). Some thoughts in the following thread.
As a technical note, I have converted wages from Euro denominated leagues to GBP using the 1.14 exchange rate from the Deloitte Money League. To facilitate comparison, I have provided figures for each league in both Euros and GBP, though the overviews are only in GBP.
In England the highest wage bill in 2019/20 was #MCFC £351m, followed by #LFC £326m, #MUFC £284m, #CFC £283m, #AFC £225m and #THFC £181m. It is worth noting that some clubs’ figures were inflated by changing their year-end date, which meant the accounts covered 13 months.
