Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United, the most valuable clubs | Fortune

Real Madrid (1,276 million euros), Barcelona (1,266 million) and Manchester United (1,130 million) maintain their positions on the podium, occupying the first, second and third place respectively in the ranking of the most valuable football club brands in Spain. 2021, according to the Football 50 2021 report by Brand Finance, the intangibles valuation consultancy.

LaLiga giants: Real Madrid and Barcelona retain gold and silver

Real Madrid, the first Spanish club by economic value (3,130 million euros), is also still the most valuable in the world with a brand value of 1,272 million euros. Covid-19 has caused the white club to lose -10.1% of its brand value this year and 2020 was the first year, since 2012, that it reversed the upward trend. Real Madrid has managed to double (+684 million euros) its brand value in the last ten years in large part due to the enormous strength of its brand. His brand fortress, which has remained stable during the past decade, reaching a score of 91.3 points out of 100, -3.6 points less than in 2020 and maintaining the AAA + elite rating in brand strength. According to Teresa de Lemus, managing director of Brand Finance Spain: “Now it is the turn for Spanish clubs to make the right decisions, it is not a time to divide or compete with each other, but to join together in the face of a common goal.”

Silver is again for FC Barcelona: with a value of 1,266 million euros, the number two in the world ranking is placed, which it already achieved in 2020 just 10 million euros away from Real Madrid. The Blaugrana club, which has been increasing its brand value since 2012, reduces it this year somewhat more than its rival (it falls by -10.4%), but manages to retain its brand strength (-2.5 points) which now stands at 91.1 over 100 (AAA +). At the club, the eyes of many are on Leo Messi, who at the end of this season will announce if he renews or with the Barça team.

While the LaLiga giants remain on the podium in 2021, it has been three years since a LaLiga club reached the UEFA Champions League final and the last appearance was Real Madrid’s win over Liverpool in 2018. Manchester City (2021 finalists) and Bayern Munich (2020 winners) have moved up to 4th and 5th places respectively, demonstrating the positive impact of strong European performances on brand equity. Despite this, both Spanish clubs have been able to qualify among the top spots in the Champions League year after year, for more than 20 years. This constant influx of income and status from the Champions League has played an essential role in the overall success of both, say from Brand Finance.

The list of Spanish clubs in the Brand Finance Football 50 2021 ranking is completed by Atlético de Madrid (position 13), Sevilla FC (position 23), Valencia CF (position 43), Athlétic de Bilbao (position 43) and Villareal CF (position 44).

Atlético de Madrid, the third most valuable Spanish football club brand, is still a big difference from the first two. The pandemic makes it lose 5.3% in brand value and -3.6 points in strength. The entity controlled by the Gil family has agreed to a partial refinancing of the financial debt, which at the end of the 2018/2019 season amounted to 223.6 million euros (of which 160 million correspond to those borrowed from the Mexican bank Inbursa , of the magnate Carlos Slim, for the construction of the Wanda Metropolitano stadium).

Of the Spanish club brands, that of the Athletic de Bilbao is the one that has experienced the greatest fall (-14.5%), since it has been mainly impacted by Covid-19 which, like all clubs, has affected its financial results and they have remained at half of the table in La Liga (9th). Athletic Club will close the 2020/21 academic year with a Spanish Super Cup under its arm, a Copa del Rey final and at the gates of European positions.

In the case of Villareal CF, Although it is in the final of the Europa League, it is currently not within the European places in La Liga (7th), and therefore it would not be classified as it is, so the revenue forecasts have been affected by this. It is, therefore, a key brand for Spanish football at the moment since, if it wins the Europa League and in LaLiga it does not qualify in European positions, there will be 5 Spaniards in the Champions League, 2 in the Europa League and 1 in the Conference League.

For its part, Real Betis, which barely reached the ranking of the most valuable club brands last year at 50th place, has not managed to stay this year as their results in La Liga have not improved and income has also been seen. affected by the pandemic.

The announcement of the Super League makes the clubs involved lose brand strength.

The failed European Super League (ESL) project has washed away the brand strength of the 12 clubs involved, robbing them of more than € 600 million of their total brand value. This has resulted in an average decrease in their Brand Strength Index scores of -3.0 points.

Likewise, the Super League proposal has also caused them to lose 606 million euros from the sum of the total value of the clubs’ brand, the equivalent of an annual decrease of -6%. The weaker brands have poor prognoses for their commercial success and sponsorship possibilities.

In addition to measuring overall brand equity, Brand Finance also determines the relative strength of brands through a balanced scorecard of metrics that assess marketing investment, brand equity, and business performance among others.

According to these criteria, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid have seen their brand strength drop more than the rest of the Spanish teams due to the announcement of the European Super League (ESL) that provoked a significant backlash from groups of key stakeholders, from players, managers, fans, football associations and regulators, as well as politicians and members of the government. Although the European Super League project seems to have been shelved, it has left collateral effects for the clubs involved such as the damage caused to the brands by the negative sentiment that the idea caused.

According to De Lemus, “to repair the damage that the Superliga has done to the brands, the clubs involved would have to act in some way. Perhaps rewarding the damage to the fans, or apologizing or any action that could bring him closer to the fans in an honest and humble way as well as credible and try to realign the brands with the lost values: these are mainly respect for the fans, community spirit and play cleansed. This will also need real actions to demonstrate commitment to this, and not just a statement. “

Britain’s lockdown is too depressing, Manchester United Rashford broke up with his 8-year girlfriend-Sports-China Times News

Premier League Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has unfortunately become a “victim” of the COVID-19 pandemic. His girlfriend Lucia Loi, whom he dated as a student, has moved out of his Manchester home. According to the British media The Sun, the two broke up peacefully with “respect and love each other.” The main reason was the pressure from the closure of the city caused by the new crown epidemic. The past 12 months have made them very uncomfortable. The source pointed out: “They still like each other and will have the opportunity to reunite in the future.”

Both Lashford and Roy are 23 years old and have been together for 8 years. The media described the two as childhood sweethearts. Roy was spotted cheering in the audience in the 2018 World Cup match between England and Colombia, and both of them tried to keep a low profile until then. The media also reported that Rachel Fo was dating an Internet celebrity model Lauryn Goodman, which was sternly refuted by Goodman. Now it seems that it is indeed a rumor.

The British media reported on Roy’s story last year. Rashfer became a professional football player, and Roy was a commissioner of a public relations company. Her professionalism can also help her boyfriend come in handy. Roy claims to like fitness, painting, cooking, and traveling. The new crown epidemic may make her unable to do anything.

Lashfer joined the Manchester United Junior Team in 2005 and started playing professionally in 2015. In March last year, the Premier League was suspended due to the epidemic. He had no ball to play for a time, and only closed the rematch after July. In October last year, the British epidemic took a sharp turn. The number of people infected exceeded one million. After more than a month, it broke through two million. Then, it rushed to more than 4 million and more than 120,000 people died in a shorter period of time. Britain has closed the city three times, the last time it was in January this year.

This may bring a lot of pressure to the two of them. Lashford is a very social person who has supported homeless and poor children for many years, and even drove food to them during the suspension. Later, they simply wrote an open letter to the British government, calling on them to face up to the problem of 1.3 million poor children in the country, and they were awarded the Order of the Imperial Member (MBE). Rashfo is not an Englishman, he is a descendant from the Caribbean, and some British sour people are quite dissatisfied with him.

Barcelona beat Chelsea 4-0 and won the 2021 Women’s Champions League – International Football – Sports

Barcelona reached excellence in Gothenburg (Sweden), where this Sunday it achieved its first Champions League in history by sweeping Chelsea 0-4 in the final with a practically perfect performance that elevates this team to the altars of European football and the history of the Barça club.

We invite you to read: (The story of the recovery of Egan Bernal)

The generation of Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmatí, Caroline Graham Hansen, Sandra Paños, Jennifer Hermoso, Lieke Martens and company completed a match that will be remembered for decades, especially the first half, in which in the 36th minute Barcelona already won by 0 -4 with goals from Putellas, Bonmatí, Graham Hansen and Melanie Leupolz at own goal.

Lluís Cortés’s team began with the sixth gear on and in the 37th second they already advanced on the scoreboard thanks to a fortunate action in which Francisca Kirby tried to clear the ball from the Chelsea area and it hit the body of her teammate Leupolz , creating a parable towards his goal before which nothing could do Ann-Katrin Berger.

The play had originated with a driving by Lieke Martens, the first of many, which ended with a shot from the edge that crashed into the crossbar. The replica of the Premier’s champions came in the next action with a shot from Pernille Harder inside the area that went a little deflected over the goal of Sandra Paños.

Shortly afterwards Harder, who cost Chelsea 300,000 euros last summer, had the goal again in his boots, but the starting goalkeeper of the Spanish team sent the ball to a corner. These two mistakes cost Chelsea dearly because in the 14th minute captain Alexia Putellas, who played the final with a sore left leg, converted a penalty committed by the unfortunate Leupolz, substituted at half-time, over Jennifer Hermoso.

And six minutes later Barcelona gave the fans a wonderful play. Martens overflowed on the left, crossed for Jennifer Hermoso, who gave it back to Putellas and this at the first touch put her inside the area for Aitana Bonmatí, who calmly, with a fresh mind, beat Berger down.

Barcelona had reversed the start of the 2019 final in Budapest. In the 19th minute of that final, they lost 3-0 to Olympique de Lyon. But Martens’ masterful internships by the band were not over yet. The run in the 36th minute was even more dictatorial, planting herself to the edge of the small box, where she gave the ball to Caroline Graham Hansen so she only had to push him to glory for the fourth time.

It was a shame that there could not be fans to see it in person. On the other hand, there will be them on Saturday 29 May in Porto in the men’s final of the Champions League that will face Manchester City and Chelsea.

The ‘blues’ came out in the second half with the intention of at least standing up and avoiding a scandal win and that could be seen in practice with different arrivals to the Paños area, although none of them could overcome the Barça defense , which featured the novelty of Patri Guijarro in the place of the sanctioned Andrea Pereira. Keira Hamraoui occupied the position that left Palma de Mallorca free in the defensive pivot.

Chelsea’s pride did not turn into goals and that left Barcelona on a path empty of obstacles until the 90th minute. Cortés took advantage of it to give minutes to fundamental players to fulfill this dream: Vicky Losada, Mariona Caldentey, Asisat Oshoala and especially Melanie Serrano, a lifetime of Barça.

Thus, Barcelona culminated a rise to the top of European football that began in 2015 with the professionalization of the women’s team. If the Barça team also win the Queen’s Cup this season, they will achieve the Champions League, League and Queen’s Cup treble for the first time in their history. Almost nothing. “Success is not the end,” said Winston Churchill. And Lluís Cortés’ Barcelona does not seem to be willing to end his happy years in Gothenburg.
