      Zenit is also the first Russian club ever included in the list published by the Brand Finance agency. Its brand value was estimated at $56 million, which gives Zenit St. Petersburg the 41st place in the rankings.

      The most valuable football brand is Manchester United, worth $853 million, which also occupied the first place last year. It followed by Bayern Munich, jumping from fourth with $786 million.  Real Madrid is on the third place with $600 million and Barcelona is the fourth with $580 million.

      The Top-50 is composed with respect to many important sources of income, such as broadcasting rights, ticket and souvenir sales and sponsorship contracts.
