Football clubs of the Old world increased its net profit by 1.5 billion euros over the past two seasons, however, financial superiority of the English teams continues to grow, according to the annual report of UEFA.
The average revenue of the clubs of the English Premier League (EPL) in 2015 amounted to 220 million euros, almost twice the next on the second place German team (just above the 135 million euros). Spanish teams on average earned a little more than 100 million euros per season, the Italian is less than 100 million euros, writes «Interfax-Ukraine».
The main source of revenue clubs receive from the sale of rights to broadcast matches. Such contracts with the TV companies make the football Association countries, who then distribute the money to teams.
Thanks to a record deal with BT Sport and Sky in terms of which the Premier League will receive 5.1 billion pounds (6,26 billion dollars.) for three years in the top ten European clubs in terms of revenue from the show matches, just 8 teams from England. Thus, in addition to grants, also includes Southampton and Swansea city.
However, the first two places in this indicator (nearly 150 million Euro per year) occupy the two Spanish super clubs «real Madrid» and «Barcelona». This situation is due to the fact that the Spanish League distributes the revenue from the sale of rights to broadcast evenly. So, the third team in the League, Atletico Madrid, received in 2015 by 50 million euros less than his more famous competitors.
The English championship is the most generous in Europe — in 2015, the clubs in the Premier League paid the players a record of 2.69 billion euros in the form of salaries and bonuses. It is twice more than the figure in the Italian Serie A.
The total transfer value of players of English clubs amounted to about 4.4 billion euros, also a record. The Spanish League, where they play the best players in the world, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Antoine Griezmann, estimated at 3.25 billion Euro, price players of the Italian championship is 2.58 billion euros.
In the 2015-2016 season matches of the Premier League teams looked at the stadiums almost 14 million people — no other League in Europe. However, the average attendance is higher among the German teams — 43,3 thousand.
Recall that in 2012, UEFA decided that the salaries of players in Europe has increased 8 times over five years, and decided to introduce financial Fair Play is that clubs have spent so much, how many you earn.
