TOP FINDINGS Working Conditions in Professional Football

For those who wouldn’t expect it, “labour” conditions of football players are not as shining as the lights on CR7 and Messi.

Roughly 45% of professional football players earn less than USD $1,000 a month.
29% are unwillingly forced to change their clubs; 15% are victims of bullying, harassment or other forms of abuse, including physical violence.
Less than 2% earns more than 790’000 USD $.
41% experience late payments and 1 player per team in average is approached by match-fixers at least once in the career.
