Clubs spent… 5,000 million in the summer market!

Although this summer market that just ended may not seem like much, the report presented by FIFA just the opposite is said.

A total of 5,004 million euros were spent by clubs worldwide on international transfers this past summer with 9,717 international transfers of players. This represents an increase of 16.2% compared to the same period in 2021 and a 6.9% increase in the number of transfers from the pre-COVID summer of 2019 where a total of 9,092 were made.

According to the report itself, the transfers showed a strong recovery, setting this new historical maximum, the 5 billion mentioned above, which indicates an increase of almost 30% compared to the same period last year where they spent three thousand eight hundred million euros. Very close to the figure reached in 2019 with a total of 5.8 billion euros. Regarding women’s football, the number of transfers in this final market has increased for the fifth year in a row.

There are a few points to highlight in this report on the summer transfer window:

  • 9,717 international transfers of male professional players in the mid-year registration period: 16.2% more than the same period in 2021 and a new all-time high over 9,092 in 2017.

  • Five billion euros were spent by clubs worldwide on transfers, an increase of 29.7% compared to the same period in 2021 where 3.8 billion were spent. In 2019, before COVID, clubs spent 5.8 billion on international transfers

  • Once again, international transfers of professional players during this summer market grew, setting a new historical maximum with 684 transfers, 14.4% more than the same period of 2021. Compare in 2018, this means triple the number previously set at 265 footballer transfers in this market.

  • Portuguese clubs made a particularly strong recovery, tripling their transfer revenue compared to the same period in 2021 and after two consecutive years of significant decline.

This is the third year in a row that the FIFA publish this report at the end of this summer window.

In January 2023, when the winter hiring window ends, the FIFA will publish a new report with the world for the year 2022.
