Spartak finished last year with a positive balance sheet, earning 560 million roubles. This is less than its revenues in 2012 which totaled 1.4 billion roubles and its 2013 figures which were as high as 1.7 billion.
Spartak finished 6th last season.
Dynamo Moscow posted a loss of 2.55 billion roubles on top of the 1 billion loss in 2013, which led by the club to be kicked out of League Europa by UEFA for the break of financial fair play. It will be replaced by FC Rubin Kazan.
Dynamo was fifth in the Premier League in 2014.
Despite the trophy, 2014 was the worst year financially for FC Zenit St Petersburg, posting a loss of 5.2 billion versus 320 million in 2013. The club’s revenues totaled 6.1 billion.
Zenit might improve its financial standing if Axel Witsel moves to Chelsea which is eyeing the 26-year-old midfielder and is ready to splash out 48 million euro. Witsel was signed by Zenit for a reported amount of 40 million euro in September 2012. He has scored 15 goals in 116 appearances for Zenit.
FC Anzhi Makhachkala can pride itself on the biggest haul among Russian sports teams. Last year Suleiman Kerimov’s club earned 4.2 billion roubles. Part of the money could have come from a major sell-off after a U-turn in the team’s strategy. Dynamo Moscow was beefed up by six Anzhi players.
Igor Denisov, Yury Zhirkov, and Alexander Kokorin, with a total reported worth of 45 million euro, had to change their career plans after Anzhi owner Suleiman Kerimov decided to cut his investment into the club and kick out the stars, focusing on local players.
Later Dynamo Moscow also bought Vladimir Gabulov, Christopher Samba and Alexey Ionov, reportedly for 18 million euro.
Dynamo replaced its coach just ahead of the start of the new season. Vyacheslav Cherchesov was fired and the head coach is now Andrey Kobelev.

VTB Bank is Dynamo's main sponsor.
