The Top 5 Leagues you Want to be Following for the 2016/2017 Season

Number 5: MLS                                                                                                                                  To begin the list we have the MLS. Now, MLS is seen as a joke of a league to many, but it really has a lot to offer. For one, it has the uncommon features of no relegation and a salary cap. While, I prefer relegation which makes lower matches more interesting as more is on the line, if you like a team that is struggling you don’t have to worry about your team moving down a league. As for the salary cap, I think it is a good thing as richer teams can’t buy success. Many are turned off by the fact that cleansheet.com didn’t feature MLS in the top five leagues with highest salary per player. Despite the lower salary, the level of play has seemed to be increasing through the years. Another bonus is if you are in the U.S., the 3rd most televised league is the MLS. Finally, if you, like me, speak English and live in the U.S., then the games are local and in your language.

Number 4: Bundesliga                                                                                                                   Now, this is personally my favorite league. After all, the average player according to cleansheet.com in the Bundesliga is payed $ 2,277,594/€ 2,090,640.39 a year which is the 2nd highest amount in any futbol league, and the quality of the futbol reflects this.  The high chemistry and the high-level play is the main draw for me.  There is a problem, though, if you are in the U.S., the Bundesliga is only the 5th most televised league. Finally, if you, like me, speak English, then the games are all in your native language, which is convenient.

Number 3: Liga MX                                                                                                                              While, I did choose this league to feature in an article. It isn’t because I think it is the best league out there. Rather I feel it is the most underrated league. After all, many are turned off by the fact that cleansheet.com didn’t feature it in the top five leagues with highest salary per player. While, usually lower salary does equal poorer match quality, this doesn’t seem to be one of those cases. I am not saying it is just as good as Premiere League, but according to the Kick YouTube video I discussed in my last article, it has pretty much the same game stats (passing percentage, counterattacks, etc.) as leagues such as Premiere League. As well, in my opinion, they have the most passionate fans and some of the most intense games due to their seemingly high amount of goals and cards. Another bonus is if you are in the U.S., the most televised league is Liga MX. Finally, the games are in Spanish, so if you speak English, there is a language barrier. Though, if you ask me the barrier is worth breaking.

Number 2: La Liga                                                                                                                                 Personally, I don’t think this league is overall the best league to begin to follow if you are going to pick only one, though many do say it is their pick and with good reason. After all, while the league doesn’t boast a very high average player salary according to cleansheet.com, in La Liga is payed $ 1,896,775/€ 1,735,300.02a year which is the 4th highest out of any league. The lower salary doesn’t seem to lower their play as their games seem to have quite good chemistry and high-level play. Sadly, a downside is if you are in the U.S., seeing La Liga games aren’t the easiest to come by, according to worldsoccertalk.com as it is only the 4th most televised league. Finally, I have found that whether you speak English or Spanish, finding games in your language isn’t all that difficult. An added bonus is this league allows you to see many superstars: Messi, Ronaldo, Bale, Greizmann, and more.

Number 1: Premiere League                                                                                                       Now, having seen the first 4 leagues on this list, you probably predicted our number 1, The Premiere League. Now, while it seems like everyone chooses this league as the top to follow, it does have good reason. After all, the average player according to cleansheet.com in the Premiere League is payed $3,554,666/€3,250,879.55 a year. This is the most per player out of every professional futbol league. The higher-salary is being shown in their play as their games seem to have the best chemistry and the highest-level play. Another bonus is if you are in the U.S., the 2nd most televised league is the Premiere League according to worldsoccertalk.com which only Liga MX beats. Finally, all games are in English.
