According to Forbes' World's Most Valuable Soccer Teams list from May 2023, Newcastle United Football Club is now worth £630 million. This is a 51% increase on the 2022 list and 110% more than the October 2021 purchase price of £305 million.

The club's value has increased significantly since the takeover primarily due to the team's excellent on-pitch performance and the increased revenues associated with that. Having comfortably avoided relegation in the 2021/22 season, the team made it to the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley and finished fourth in the Premier League during the 2022/23 season.

That impressive league placing means that Newcastle will participate in the UEFA Champions League proper in 2023/24. Champions League participation is said to be worth £27 million before a ball has been kicked. The club is said to have earned £163.4 million from its Premier League participation alone in 2022/23. This represented an increase of £31.9 million (24%) compared to the revenue generated in the previous season.

A lucrative new shirt sponsorship deal with Sela, worth a reported £25 million per year, was also signed in May 2023. This is an increase of £18.5 million per year over the previous shirt sponsor deal with Fun88, which is moving to be the club's "official Asian betting partner". More partnerships are expected to be announced in the near future.

According to the most recent projections, Newcastle United will generate at least £265 million in 2023/24. This will see the club become one of the top 15 in world football in terms of revenue generation and will ensure that its value continues to increase significantly season-on-season.
