Celebrity Index - Euro 2021
A Statista DossierPlus on the celebrity status of football players and teams competing in the 2021 European Championship
Other than bragging rights and national pride, one of the best aspects of the tournament is seeing each competing country's best players battle it out on the pitch. Off of the pitch, the celebrity lives of professional football players are just as interesting. Some players have transfer market values of more than one hundred million euros, some are amongst the most-followed people on earth on social media. Their lives are magnified and scrutinized in the press and their behavior on and off the pitch can be projected as a hero's or villain's.
In celebration of this year's UEFA European Football Championship, Statista has published a DossierPlus on the Celebrity status of football players and teams competing in the 2021 Euro's. The publication weighs social media followers, TransferMarkt market values, the number of global online news articles, and the sentiment value of those articles to score both teams and players with a Celebrity Index Score. Discover which team and players are crowned as the biggest celebrities in the European game as well as a host of other facts and trivia about one of the largest sporting events in the world.
