'Big Five' - Statistics & Facts

The 'Big Five' represent the five most successful football leagues in Europe, which are made up of the Premier League in England, La Liga in Spain, the Bundesliga in Germany, Serie A in Italy and Ligue 1 in France. The combined revenue of these five leagues, which each represent the highest tier football division in their countries, has more than doubled in the past decade, reaching a total of approximately 18 billion euros in 2020.

The Premier League is not only the most successful football league out of the five, but also the most successful sports league in the world, having reached a revenue of roughly six billion euros in 2020, with a profitability of close to one billion euros. Wage costs of the leagues range from approximately 1.3 billion euros in the Ligue 1 in France to 3.2 billion euros in the Premier League and brand value ranges from 1.2 billion euros in Ligue 1 to 8.7 billion euros in the Premier League.

Even though the Premier League is on top in most aspects of football in Europe, it does not have the highest average attendance. Germany's Bundesliga matches have had the highest average attendance since 2005. During the 2017/2018 season, the Bundesliga had an average attendance of 43.88 thousand attendees, followed by the Premier League with 38.5 thousand attendees. Spain, Italy and France range from 22 to 26 thousand attendees on average.
