The European football market generated revenues of €25.2 billion in the 2019/2020 season. which means a decrease by 13 percent y/y, according to the report of the advisory company Deloitte (Annual Review of Football Finance). This is the first such case since the global financial crisis of 2008/09.

"As a result of the pandemic, the 'big five' European leagues (Bundesliga, La Liga, Ligue 1, Premier League and Serie A) generated €15.1 billion in revenues during the period in question, which is an 11 percent decrease compared to the previous year,” the release reads.

The Premier League remains the leader in terms of revenues. However, they fell by 13 percent to €5.1 billion, the first such case in the history of the English league and the lowest total revenue level since 2015/16. On the other hand, the smallest decline affected the German Bundesliga (by 4 percent, €137 million), because the local season ended before the end of the financial year and only minimal discounts were granted to TV broadcasters. The Bundesliga generated revenues of €3.2 billion and in this respect exceeded the Spanish La League (€3.1 billion).

While the combined revenues of the major leagues decreased by 11 percent, wage costs remained unchanged, Deloitte noted.
