Liverpool are now one of the world’s richest sports teams, having more than doubled in value

Liverpool are one of three Premier League clubs whose value has more than doubled in the past five years, making them one of the richest sporting clubs in the world.

The Jurgen Klopp era propelled Liverpool to the pinnacle of English football after more than 25 years of failing among the ‘big boys’. So it’s no surprise that the club’s value has more than doubled recently.

According to Forbes, the Reds are among 27 major sports teams to have increased in value by at least 100% in the past five years and are now establishing themselves as one of the richest clubs in the world.

In fact, Liverpool are currently 175% more valuable than they were in 2018 – beaten only by New York City FC (188%), LA Galaxy (189%), LA FC (228%) and PSG (334%) .

The Merseysiders reached the Champions League final in 2018, marking the club’s first real assault on European football’s highest trophy in more than a decade. By winning the contest in 2019, their stock increased even further.

Premier League success followed in 2020, and two years later they added the FA Cup and League Cup to their honours list – and nearly landed a quadruple too.

The 2022/23 season was a bitterly disappointing one, with Jurgen Klopp’s side racking up just 67 points in the league and finishing outside the top four for the first time since 2016, but taken in context it’s nothing more than a blot on an otherwise spectacularly successful period for the club – success that is fully reflected in the club’s current value.

Jürgen Klopp’s era is by far the most successful Liverpool have had in the Premier League. Liverpool aren’t the only Premier League side to have more than doubled in value.

Tottenham, who reached their first Champions League final in 2019, are now 128% more valuable than they were five years ago, while Manchester City, who won 10 major honors in that span, culminating in this season’s historic treble have had their value increased by 102%.

Elsewhere, AC Milan’s value increased by 129% and Dortmund by 114%. The rest of the list is made up of US-based sports teams, including six MLS teams, four NFL teams, six NHL teams and five NBA teams.
