Soccer players are paid vastly more at the professional levels than rugby players
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.
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.
Yes soccer players are paid very highly, it has gone over the roof .
Soccer Players Big time.
