Very interesting report by Deloitte about european football. A must read!
a few points:
-The Premier League remains by a distance the highest
revenue generating league at €2.5 billion in 2010/11
and recorded the highest revenue growth of any of
the ‘big five’ leagues in local currency of 12%
-The Bundesliga’s revenue grew 5% to €1,746m. Its
clubs lead the way in terms of commercial revenue
(€816m) and average attendance (42,100).
-The Premier League and the Bundesliga were the only
‘big five’ leagues to achieve operating profits in
2010/11. The Bundesliga (€171m) substantially
increased the gap over the Premier League (€75m).
Losses in Ligue 1 decreased marginally to €97m.
