Professional services firm Deloitte has unveiled its Annual Review of Football Finance for 2020, showing that Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues generated record high combined turnover of close to €17bn (£15.2/$19.3) in the 2018-19 season, but also warning of “significant revenue reduction” next year in the aftermath of the Covid-19 global pandemic. 

The 29th edition of the Annual Review from the Sports Business Group at Deloitte showed that the English Premier League remains comfortably Europe’s richest division, with total revenues of £5.2bn (€5.7bn/$6.6bn) making it 73 per cent larger than Spain’s LaLiga, the continent’s second-richest league.
