Post by scottS4 » 05 Mar 2009, 02:33

how much do you think players make in leagues such as the belgian league, swedish league, cyprus etc that arent as well known?

on another note, how much do you figure players in say.. football leauge 1 or 2 in england make?

I know this is kind of old but i was looking it up myself not long ago, everyone hears about the richest players but i was trying to find the average that most get. This doesnt help you out with the other European leagues but it has figures for England.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/4898392.stm

Championship players earn an average salary of £195,750, League One players £67,850 and League Two £49,600.[/quote]

I found that impressive considering league two is 4th tier and 49600 is just over $100kAUD which is not far off the first division here, but then i saw how many leagues there are below it and that it is probably around the same quality as our first division.

thanks for finding that, i was always curious because you read about ronaldos salary or ballacks but you wonder about all the other players that play for a living.
