The top 20 clubs in football's Money League
17. Olympique Lyonnais
Last year: 17th
Lyon make what will likely be one last hurrah in the Money League before tumbling out of the top 20 due to the loss of Champions League football this season. The club has been heavily reliant on broadcasting revenue (43% of its total) to retain a lofty position, and their average matchday revenue of £588,356 is the joint lowest in this list. Although their new Stade des Lumieres should remedy this, it is not due to open until the opening day of 2015, and as such top-level European football is a more pressing short-term requirement for OL.
