Delay to Deloittes Premier League rich list

The firm told the report was being delayed as it was looking to combine two reports into one for the first time this year, resulting in an increase in the information being collated.

It also wants to bring out a much more detailed report including additional information on the top European clubs as well as data on the UK’s top clubs.

A spokeswoman for the firm, confirmed: ‘We don’t expect the rich list to be released this month.’

In last year’s report, the tax bills of the top 20 teams in football’s Premier League were found to have shot up by 64% over the previous two years.
