Promoted Premier League clubs have squad value topping €500m, Fulham lead way

August 15 – Of the 14 promoted clubs starting the new season in Europe’s Big 5 leagues, the promoted Premier League clubs have a combined squad value of more than double the other leagues.

The figures from the Football Benchmark teams show the Premier League clubs have a combined squad value of €518 million – Fulham have the highest squad value with €192 million, only €1 million less than the combined value of the three promoted LaLiga teams.

Serie A’s promoted clubs have a combined squad value of €196 million, while Bundesliga clubs show a €152 million combined squad value and Ligue 1 promoted clubs €106 million.

“Some clubs work hard for years to reach the top tier only to drop out the following season – in the last campaign, four clubs out of the 14 (35%) in these leagues were relegated to the second tier after only one year,” says the Football Benchmark team.
