This year’s survey was again conducted in association with ESPN The Magazine in the USA as part of a special ‘Money Issue’ project, which also included a list of the highest paid sportspeople from 200 countries.

One aim of the survey – aside from using the data as a starting point to explore the relationship between pay and performance – is to gauge salaries in as like-for-like manner possible in 14 leagues in seven diverse sports in 10 countries.

As such the findings have been of interest to many different readerships, including:
