That is true in a way. In the US basketball is more popular than soccer. That is why basketball players are paid more. In other countries, soccer is more popular so soccer players get paid more. Soccer in the US is becoming increasingly popular. Soon soccer players could be paid as much as basketball players.
Soccer players are paid vastly more at the professional levels than rugby players
Yes soccer players get paid more than basketball player. The reason for this is that Basketball is mostly funded by the US. Soccer is funded by many countries. So soccer is the higher paid sport.
Yes by a lot on average.
Soccer Players Big time.
Yes soccer players are paid very highly, it has gone over the roof .
New Zealand soccer players are paid high salaries, and receive more money than United States players because the sport is more popular there. Players in the United States make around $7 million, and those in New Zealand make slightly more than that.
Soccer players get paid in pounds in England , but in Europe they are paid in Euros.
40 to 30 million pro soccer players
That depends on who you are talking about. Prime time great athletes in soccer, i.e. David Beckham, get paid $50 million a year. Most soccer players get paid less than that, though, much less. A good basketball player gets paid around $20 million a year.
In South Africa Rugby Union Players are paid an average of four times that of Football players who in turn urn more or less the same as the Cricket Players before the IPL Cricket Tournament was formed.
In comparison to American football players and soccer players they certainly are not over paid but for the top players its considered that they may be under paid
players are paid so little because they can not organize a strike to get paid more it's always the owners that organize lockouts and plus the owners run the league unlike other sports where the players run it like the NBA
All professional hockey players get paid. They just make more money if they play in a world championship. They make more money from their basic salary and from endorsements of products. If they bet on the game they are playing in, they could be in trouble, because betting on the sport you are playing in is usually illegal.
A soccer player, Ronaldo from real Madrid is paid 126 millions of euros
In the United States $550,000 is the minimum pay for pro hockey players, but most make at least 1 or 2 million or more. The most in the NHL today is $10,000,000.
The top five are soccer players and probably British or Scottish or African. Do they pay players in Africa?
Because mens football is more established than womens football. Womens football is not as big in England as it is in America and unfortunately it probably never will be
