EPL Only Football League To Recover From COVID-19 In 2021-22 : Study
According to the data gathered by SafeBettingSites, Premier League are expected to fully recover from the Covid-19 pandemic during the 2021-22 season. The report claims that the total revenue of Premier League clubs during the ongoing season will surpass the figure from the 2018-19 season.
The revenue of PL clubs dropped to 5.1 Billion Euros in 2019-20 from 5.8 Billion in 2018-19. This was a massive blow for the largest football league, but the latest report suggests that the revenues should recover and increase to 6.1 Billion in 2021-22.
The other leagues are also on the path of recovery, but their way back might not be as smooth as it would be for the Premier League.
Premier League Leading The Recovery, but Other Leagues Lag Behind
The football world was delivered a huge blow last year as COVID put a halt on live events. Expectedly, the disruptions caused by the global pandemic put a significant strain on the financial capabilities of clubs and leagues.
The top European leagues have already started to recover. However, some leagues are not expected to make a full recovery during 2021-22. Even though fans are back in stadiums, some of the major European leagues will not reach pre-Covid numbers yet.
Vyom Chaudhary, editor at SafeBettingSites.com, commented: “These numbers only confirm the financial might of the Premier League. Even though the footballing industry as a whole is recovering from Covid, the path of recovery is going to be tougher for some leagues than others. Furthermore, the Premier League has benefitted from allowing fans in full capacities in stadiums.”
