UEFA Champions League now paves way for Europa League dancers to take the stage. Chelsea and Arsenal will be shaking to the core across Europe to represent the Premier League. The two London giants will not want to start their European campaign with a defeat like Manchester City. Today, as we wait to be entertained by the Gunners and Blues, let us take a look at six most profitable stadiums in Europe in 2018.
6. Allianz Arena- $78M (Bayern Munich)
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich collect approximately $78 million per season thanks to their 75,024 capacity Stadium Allianz Arena. The Stadium was constructed to host World Cup matches in 2006. It is an iconic venue and great history has been created there already. The Bavarians have lifted a title in the venue almost every season.
5. Stamford Bridge- $93.1M (Chelsea)
Chelsea is owned by a Russia billionaire Roman Abramovich since 2003. The Blues play their home games at Stamford Bridge which has capacity 41,631. Therefore, it is shocking to see that they make $93.1 million per year through tickets. This means the fans have to dig deeper into their pockets to watch their team playing at home.
4. Old Trafford- $114M (Man United)

Manchester United owns the biggest stadium in England by capacity. No other club has a bigger home venue and this allows them to keep tickets prices low for many fans to be able to attend home matches. The Red Devils may not be doing very well since Sir Alex Ferguson departure but they are still collecting $114 million per year from gate collections.
