    The South African clubs are the richest but they have only one team that plays in the CL and thats Orlando Pirates.

    The SA clubs will continue to become even wealthier, with the new (massive) TV and Sponsorship deals. Also, the benefits of 2010 will start to be felt, with new Stadia, new sponsorship and a renewed interest in Football . .

    I doubt the numbers listed are entirely accurate, although that's at no fault of your own and in fact I commend you for the work you've done. While some of the more professional clubs will keep very accurate numbers (this is mostly the big Egyptian, Tunisian and South African clubs), the rest will rarely ever release the true numbers. In fact, even simple things like transfers are usually understated, and you can imagine where the difference goes.

    I agree tony - it is very difficult to get financial data from African leagues. Tunisia and Morrocco are the best at publishing data . . South Africa the data is compiled from a few official sources and media quotes, the remainder from media quotes, blogs etc . .

    However, check out my new site which has data of all African Sports teams (Cricket and Rugby too) with revenues of €1m plus . . https://sites.google.com/site/sportsrevenues/home
