How much money does Celtic Football Club make?

Celtic's income fell to PS83.4 million in 2019, although the club remains one of the top 70 richest in the world. Rangers recorded a 63% gain in turnover for the same year, propelling them into the top 120 with a revenue of PS53.2 million. However, despite their greater wealth, Celtic maintained a higher profit margin than Rangers.

Celtic's revenue comes from several sources including match tickets, merchandise, commercial activities, TV rights, and other. The club has had many successful years by European standards, most notably when they won the UEFA Cup in 1995-96. Since then, their main achievement has been winning the League Championship twice (2001-02, 2019-20).

Currently, Celtic are the only Scottish team in the top division of any major football league. They have won the Scottish Premier League seven times and the Scottish League One six times. Their domestic success is matched by their international reputation; Celtic have won the UEFA Champions League once in 2010-11. The club has also produced many talented players who have gone on to play at a high level elsewhere. Examples include Paul Hartley, Henrik Larsson, Scott McDonald, Gary McAllister, and Tony Popovic.

In 2019, Celtic's revenue was PS83.4 million, with an increase of 7.1%. This places them as the fifth most profitable club in the world behind Manchester City, Chelsea, Barcelona and Arsenal.

How does Celtic Football Club rank in the world?

Since 2002, the list has been compiled annually and ranks teams based on income to reflect financial performance.

Celtic are the most successful club in Europe with 13 European titles, including seven consecutive from 1981-1997. The Irish club is also the most decorated in the history of the UEFA Champions League with 12 appearances, including a record seven consecutive finals appearances from 1980-1996. They have won the competition twice, in 1990 and 1995.

Celtic are one of only three clubs (along with Real Madrid and Barcelona) to have won the UEFA Champions League while still playing within their own country (the others being Real Madrid and Barcelona). The Scottish club has also won the Cup Winners' Cup and the League of Ireland Premier Division multiple times. In addition, they are the only team to have won the European Cup/UEFA Champions League without losing a match throughout the entire season.

Celtic's home ground is Parkhead Stadium in Glasgow. The stadium was built in 1875 and opened its doors to football matches for the first time on 11 September 1890 when it hosted an international between Scotland and England. It currently has a capacity of 41,000 seats, though some of these are reserved for staff and sponsor boxes.

Who earns the most in Scottish football?

Celtic Celtic was the highest-paid club in the Scottish Premiership in the 2019/2020 season. In that season, the average yearly player compensation was 1.12 million US dollars, while Hamilton, the lowest-paying team in the Scottish Premiership, paid 51.44 thousand US dollars. In international competitions, Scotland's national team played in one major tournament during this period, the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. At the time, they were placed third in their group after playing three matches. The winner of each group advances to the next stage, and the two losers play a final match to determine which country finishes first in the pool.

Celtic became the first British club to pay its players a collective total of one billion pounds ($1.3 billion) over five years from 2011. They did so by issuing shares to some of their players.

Both Rangers and Celtic have been accused of using their financial clout to block rivals from recruiting key staff members. This is particularly the case at Ibrox where there has never been an assistant manager or fitness coach with the title of head coach. Instead, former players have been given these roles without any opportunity to manage at a higher level than the junior squad.

Both clubs have also been criticized for using their financial strength as justification for buying top-level talent with expensive contracts. This practice is known as "financial doping" and is banned in European football.
