• The Premier League remains by a distance the highest revenue generating league at €2.5 billion in 2010/11 and recorded the highest revenue growth of any of the ‘big five’ leagues in local currency of 12% (£241m). Further depreciation of Sterling against the Euro meant that the gap to the second highest revenue generating league, the Bundesliga, narrowed slightly to €769m.
• The Bundesliga’s revenue grew 5% to €1,746m. Its clubs lead the way in terms of commercial revenue (€816m) and average attendance (42,100). The additional Champions League spot for Germany from 2012/13 and 50% uplift in domestic league broadcasting rights from 2013/14 will help continue the Bundesliga’s impressive recent revenue growth and will secure its status as the Premier League’s closest rival in revenue terms.
• La Liga revenues grew by 5% to €1,718m. This was again driven by Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, who achieved a combined €93m (11%) increase in revenue. The remaining 18 La Liga clubs suffered a cumulative decrease of €19m (2%). The top two clubs now generate 54% of total La Liga revenue.
