UEFA chief warns of threat posed by growing dominance of ‘big five’ leagues

Premier League clubs generated more revenue in 2018 than the top-flight teams in 50 of UEFA’s 55 member countries combined, a new report from the European governing body has found.

The Benchmarking Report, which takes a forensic look at the European football landscape, found that in the 2018 financial year the 20 top-flight English teams generated a combined 5.4 billion euros (£4.6bn), compared to the 5.25bn euros (£4.49bn) earned by the top division teams in the bottom 50 countries. For context, those countries have provided 20 different clubs who have won UEFA trophies.
