For many billionaires, football club ownership is seen as an attractive investment opportunity. But while the new owners can expect impressive returns, what benefit does the club and its fans get to enjoy?

To find out, we looked at 30 different football clubs with billionaire owners, spread across Europe’s top five leagues. We’ve then analysed each team’s performance before and after the takeover, tracking just how much money has been spent and what results this has led to.

Vanquis Bank has looked at how 30 different football clubs across different leagues with Billionaire owners are performing. Analysing if their money was well spent - whether the investment has led to an increase in spending on transfers and performing better in their league tables.

Chelsea have seen their transfer budget increase modestly (£43,586,706) and have performed marginally better than last season (on avg).

The richer the owner, the higher the transfer spend is (and usually an improvement in their avg position)

1.      Manchester City, owned by Sheikh Mansour (£15,500,000,000 net worth) has seen an increase in their transfer spend of £88,992,000

2.      AC Milan, owned by Paolo Scaroni (£2,700,000,000 net worth) has seen their average transfer spend increase by £78,878,000

Although high-cost transfers aren’t always the main factor of a team’s performance

1.      Wolverhampton Wanderers increased their transfer budget (£56,022,500) and jumping 16 positions higher on average.

2.      Fulham made a modest increase of £18,040,429 in their average transfer spend but still fell 19 positions.

Investment needs to be spread across nurturing existing talent, management and sports tech.
