Arsenal Club Value: How much does Arsenal Value
Arsenal used to be one of the biggest clubs in the world during Arsene Wenger’s reign in the early 2000s. The club were on a rise financially since Stan Kroenke bought them in 2007. But it was before them that they really made a mark, winning trophies and sponsoring a £390 stadium rebuild in 2004 of the Emirates. So, what went wrong and where does Arsenal club value stands now?
The Forbes list puts the debate to rest- Arsenal Club Value
Forbes’s list of the most valuable teams in the world releases yearly and considers the revenue, operating cost, and the market value of the club to give a total overview of the club’s value. As of 202, Arsenal are the 8th richest football team in the world with a club value of somewhere around $2.8billion, which is pretty impressive.
The Gunners lead clubs like PSG, Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan, and AC Milan in that list but had a growth of just 23% in that value over the last two years, which shows a bit of stagnation considering clubs like PSG (129%) and Liverpool (88%) have stepped in that time. But it’s by no means a bad placement on the elite list.
Arsenal Club Value- Dissecting the numbers
The image above shows that Arsenal have some big clubs to overtake if they want to crack the top 5 of that list, something which will be tough. But it’s an ode to the brand that Wenger established during his time that has kept the club famous and relevant across the world. After all, they were one of the members of the esteemed ‘big 4’ during their heyday alongside Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
Arsenal signed a sponsorship deal with Adidas in 2019 worth £300million. Another big deal is with that of Middle Eastern Airlines, Emirates, worth £200million when it was signed in 2018. Apart from these, the club has several minor deals with Konami, Cadbury, and other companies.
Their brand value will increase once there is an improvement in performances. Clubs like Newcastle United, PSG, and RB Leipzig threaten Arsenal’s position in this list with their recent rich owners and Mikel Arteta knows that football is business- and if the cash doesn’t come in for Arsenal owners, he may well get the sack.
Arsenal’s focus should be on going up that list rather than settling for top 10. They have capitalized on their big brand value in the past few years but once its time to renew these deals or sign new contracts with other sponsors, they may not get favourable terms if their market value plummets. And that is something that the board must be very careful about.
