    Come on guys.

    Teams in Saudi, UAE, and Qatar should not even be listed here.

    there is no real revenue for football in these countries. The club is usually funded by a Prince, a Sheikh, or a group of them.

    They would pay all the expenses from either their personal pockets, through their own companies, or through companies of people who would like to get something back from the Prince/Sheikh.

    And the governments themselves sponsor those clubs as well!

    This can not be considered a revenue!

    FC Bayern München
    Nat'l Team:
    Victory will be the best soon enough. They get the most crowds pretty comfortably in the A-League and once they start getting better players and doing well in the CL they will be the Real Madrid, Man Utd, Bayern Munich etc. of their league.

    Seongnam and Suwon, two biggest clubs in K-league in terms of revenues have been left out. They could easily be in Asia's top 5 richest club list. Ulsan Hyundai and Pohang are also financially very strong.

    Also Daejeon, Daegu, Gyeongnam should not be in the list as they are one of the poorest clubs in K-league.

    the only flaw I see to these stats is that Middle Eastern teams dont fit the same economic model as East Asian teams. In East Asia, teams are owned by the private sector. People own shares, each team has a relative stock market price, they are businesses more or less. East Asia is similar to N. America, Oceania, S. America and Europe.

    The Middle East is similar to Africa whereby teams do not have owners. Teams do not have shares, or stock market prices. You cant own or buy a team in the ME or Africa. The teams are owned by the governments. The governments appoint presidents for each team. These presidents, "if theyre rich", can bring in their own money into the team as a means of sponsorship or funding. So we cant really compare them. This is, however, changing very quickly but mostly in Africa. I think most African countries are starting to adopt the private-sector economic model. Only teams in the ME remain owned by the governmet.

    The reason Seongnam and Suwon are not on my list is because I do not have their income statements - If you know they are rich, then tell me what the income is please.

    Just because a team may be poor does not mean they cannot be on a list (although near the bottom)
