Report: Tottenham rising in football rich list, closing in on top 10

Daniel Levy

Tottenham have risen to 13th in Deloitte's football rich list.

In Deloitte's yearly Football Money League investigations, Tottenham Hotspur are on the rise.

The full report can be read here, or condensed and simplified by The Guardian after it's release this week, and there has been plenty of movement.

For Tottenham, they have risen from 14th to 13th, overtaking Bundesliga side Schalke in the Money League table with 22% rise in revenue since last year's Money League findings.

That will be great news for chairman Daniel Levy, with Tottenham having one of the biggest percentage increases in the entire table.

With plans for a new stadium and healthy sponsorship revenues, Tottenham are a club heading in the right direction off the pitch - and now they have a manager in Mauricio Pochettino who can guide them to success on it, which should please fans.

Elsewhere in the Money League table, Manchester United rose back up from fourth to second having dipped last year, whilst Liverpool also climbed three places from 12th to 9th after a strong year.

It's status quo for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, who have made no movement in the standings, whilst there are also new teams in the mix from the Premier League in the top 20 - Newcastle and Everton are 19th and 20th respectively, as the Premier League continues to prove that it really is the biggest - or most commercially rewarding - league in the world.
