The excellent and scarily thorough Swiss Ramble takes a look at Barcelona and Madrid's finances


Here is the full link to the Swiss Ramble article. Below is a quick snapshot of the two la Liga giants profit and loss accounts and firstly the distribution of TV revenue.

Do read his article, it's excellent stuff. If anyone knows of a more qualified authority on football finances, let me know.

Swiss Ramble then had this to say:

*In other words, Madrid and Barcelona on their own received around 43% of the total TV money in La Liga or 11 times as much as the €13 million given to the last club on the list (Racing Santander). This unbalanced deal produces the most uneven playing field in Europe and compares unfavourably to the 1.6 multiple in the Premier League between first and last clubs. Such a revenue disadvantage is bad enough for one season, but it makes a gigantic difference over time. As Sevilla president del Nido complained, “The two giants have earned €1,500 million more than the next club in the last ten years.”*
