The Spanish giants kept their position ahead of the country's league winners Barcelona, who also won the Champions League in the 2014/15 season. Madrid's revenue grew from 459.5 million euros to 577 million euros, while Barcelona - who jumped up two places to second - saw a significant increase in revenue, from 484.8 million euros to 560-8 million euros.

Bayern Munich are the leading Bundesliga club in the top-twenty list, but dropped down two places to sit fifth in the table, behind French club Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League giants Manchester United.

Bayern's overall revenue decreased by 13 million euros to 474 million euros for 2014/15, despite triumphing in the Bundesliga. Bayern's broadcast revenue also decreased marginally by 1.6m euros to 106.1 million euros, but Deloitte's report suggests that in 2015/16, this number will increased when Fox Sports' recent takeover of coverage of the Bundesliga is noted.

Matchday revenue also grew for Bayern, with the increase in capacity of the Allianz Arena from 72,882 to just over 75,000 in the second half of the season.

Borussia Dortmund and Schalke are the only two other Bundesliga teams in the top-twenty, with Dortmund holding eleventh position with revenue increasing by 19.1 million euros to 280.6 million euros. The Royal Blues rose one place to thirteenth, with revenue increasing by 5.7 million to 219.7 million euros.
