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


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.
