The league, which takes into account a club's total income has United at 19th place - the first the club has appeared in the list since relegation in 02/03.

The club's annual income is estimated by Deloittes to be 60.1m, making United England's eighth biggest club in terms of revenue. The Hammers are one of only two clubs on the list - the other being German outfit Schalke - never to have won their domestic Championship.

United's position - which is based upon figures from the 2005/06 season - was boosted by good league form and an appearance in the 2005 FA Cup Final. The 60.1m consists of 16.5m matchday revenue, 28.2m from broadcasting revenue and 15.4m from commercial ctivities.

The full list is as follows. Parethesis indicate last year's placing.
