Europe vibrates with football and this reality is far from a secret. With millions of fans around the world, some of the European teams are among the most prominent on the planet. But what effective impact does this interest in European football have on this continent's economy? The Annual Review of Football Finance has given us the answer that we bring to you today.

The impact of football on the European economy is immense, if not one of the most important sports markets in the world. It is true that not all leagues in Europe have the same kind of impact on the economy, but those that do are able to effectively move the coffers of countries and the continent in general. The figures released by the Annual Review of Football Finance on them prove this, stating which are the most powerful leagues in European football and letting us know some of the surprising figures responsible for the great economic impact of this sport.

What are the most economically powerful leagues in Europe?

As we have said, although football is a European fever, the impact of European football leagues is not always the same. The most economically powerful countries when it comes to football are England, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.The transactions carried out by these teams are some of the most profitable in the world, and if we consider the 2017/18 season, we will see that England would be enough to hold 72 this figure.

Very close, however, would be Spain and Italy, and the latter could have a significant increase in the next analyses, due to the hiring of Juventus, for whom Cristiano Ronaldo now plays. Along with these, the French team is also one of the most profitable in the world.

Europe and football: a growing marketThe

Annual Review of Football Finance has revealed surprising figures in its analysis of football in Europe. These figures, presented by Deloite, show that this market will have moved, in the 2017/2018 season, around 28 billion euros, a very significant amount in view of the current international economic scenario. This figure, although very high, does not come equally from all the leagues, and the five leagues mentioned above are undoubtedly the most responsible for this amount.

The figures obtained by these teams come from signings and transfers but also from commercial rights, broadcasting rights and sponsors.-.
