As the leading football league in Europe, the English Premier League (EPL) is projected to be worth around 6.1 billion euros in the 2021/22 season and is expected to generate three billion euros more than other top football leagues in Spain and Germany who rank second and third respectively.

Although Spain is in second place, they still hold onto the title of the top-earning football club with Real Madrid generating revenues of 896 million euros in 2021, which was over 80 million euros more than the second-highest earners, Barcelona.

According to data presented by BettingLounge, the combined revenues of the five biggest football leagues in 2021/22 will amount to an estimated 16.5 billion euros. But why is the English Premier League earning so much more than the other top football leagues in Europe?

Germany maintains the highest average per game attendance, but the broadcasting rights are driving the EPL above all the other leagues. The EPL sold domestic broadcasting rights between 2016-2019 for around five billion British Pounds and sold the overseas broadcasting rights for around three billion British pounds.
