A new study suggests the world’s top footballers have seen a pay increase of 1,500% during the past 50 years.
The High Pay Centre report outlines the huge pay rise some footballers have seen. The rise is mammoth compared to the increase in UK wages, which have risen by 186% during the same period.
The wage increase is thought to be down to an increase in ticket prices. Ticket costs have risen by 1,000% in two decades.
