Default Premier League soars ahead

Premier League soars ahead

Submitted by WG on Wed, 21/10/2015 - 07:07

The latest Uefa benchmarking report shows that the Premier League is fast outstripping all other European leagues in financial terms. It has a bigger income than the 48 smaller leagues in Europe.

Total income is 3,3bn with the Bundesliga in second place on 1.8bn. The Premier League has also overtaken the Bundesliga in commercial and sponsorship income.

The Premier League can pay by far the highest wages in the world. Only a few clubs elsewhere, such as Real Madrid and Barcelona, pay comparable wages.

Does all this money provide quality football? Clearly not always, although Arsenal's victory over Bayern Munich last night has temporarily silenced critics.
