The leagues from England, Spain, and Germany dominate the list and make up the largest share of the total revenue. While revenues had steadily increased in the years before the pandemic, it will be interesting to see how the numbers will develop in the coming years. It remains to be seen what impact the pandemic will have on football in Europe and whether it will have long-term consequences for the revenue of the clubs and the competitiveness of the leagues.
