Soccer Inc.

We know that every year the sport moves huge amounts of money around. Couple that together with the powerful brand images of the major clubs and what you get are businesses capable of stirring the passions of millions of fans while generating billions. Yet we never compare the size of a soccer club with that of a large corporation from another sector. That's something we at Goalnomics will attempt to remedy, giving you the chance to compare the top European clubs with some well-known companies from the ancient continent.
