Man United Named World Most Popular Club

An estimate firm known as New Data has named English Premiership club, Manchester United the world’s most popular club.

The Red Devils regained their title as the world’s most popular club after selling more replica football shirts than any other club.

United sold an average of 1.75 million shirts a year in the five-season period between 2011 and 2016, industry insider Dr Peter Rohlmann and his team at PR Marketing revealed.

Real Madrid came in at second place, having sold 100,000 fewer shirts than United, while Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea make up the rest of the top five according to the data.

Liverpool are sixth.

Rivals Liverpool finished in sixth place with an average of 852,000 shirt sales while Manchester City sat in 13th place with 342,000 replica shirt sales over the five-season period, the new study claims.

Dr Rohlmann, a veteran analyst who has authored a number of indepth studies into kit supply deals and sales by Europe’s elite clubs, has not been surprised by the staggering figures.

“Generally, the sales of replica shirts have increased at a constant growth rate,” he said. “Football jerseys are more popular than ever and their attractive designs increasingly mean fans want to wear them away from match days.”
