The European football market saw revenues grow by 10 per cent to €27.6bn ($28.1bn) in 2020-21, despite an almost complete absence of fans from stadia during the season due to Covid-19, according to Deloitte’s latest Annual Review of Football Finance.

The 31st report from the professional services company’s Sports Business Group states that the strong recovery, in revenue terms, of the European market, which contracted for the first time in over a decade in the 2019-20 season due to the impact of Covid-19, was fuelled by deferred broadcast revenues and the success of Uefa Euro 2020, postponed by a year due to the pandemic.
