The home of Arsenal FC, the Emirates Stadium, was revealed to be the most profitable ground in all of Europe. Yes, number one; numero uno. Top of the food chain. The smartest in the room. The alpha dog. Consulting firm Deloitte ranked the stadiums in order of the revenue that they generated in the 2014/15 season.
Here’s the write-up for Emirates Satdium via TeamTalk.com:
Arsenal made the tough decision to leave Highbury and build an entirely new stadium in London in 2006. The new, state-of-the-art ground in Holloway eventually be came to known simply as “The Emirates.” It holds over 60,000 people, and features huge murals on the outside of 32 legends locking arms, effectively “embracing” the stadium. Arsenal fans fill the stadium regularly, and ideas of expanding even further are a constant discussion
The English Premier League dominated the list with Chelsea #5 (Stamford Bridge), Manchester United (Old Trafford) #4, Liverpool (Anfield) #8 and Manchester City (Etihad) #9. Thus the EPL comprised half the top ten.
Congrats to the Emirates Stadium!
