In 2017, the clubs of the Russian football Premier League (RPL) all together spent on the salaries of players of 582 million euros. According to this indicator, RPL was in sixth place among the top 20 European football leagues. The salaries of the players of the Russian team then spent 72% of their income. These data, according to UEFA, was the second largest figure among the ten top European leagues. In General, the total income of the clubs of RPL in 2017 amounted to 813 million euros.
This index became the sixth in Europe. More income then received only representatives of the English Premier League (5.3 billion Euro), Spanish (2.9 billion euros), German (2.8 billion euros), Italian (2.1 billion euros) and French (1.6 billion euros). Unfortunately, none of the Russian club is not traded in the stock market, and sporting achievements are more than modest. The question, obviously, first and foremost, in the quality of management: “Spartak” and “Zenit” are very serious money. It should also be recalled that in Soviet times, the Soviet players won the “Cup of cups”, succeed in opposition to best clubs in Europe, but did so for very modest money.
