This season the number of followers increased by almost a third.

In its section on women’s football, the report notes a slight improvement in competitive balance: the proportion of “heavy matches” that end with a difference of more than 3 goals decreased from 34% to 33%.

In men’s matches, the percentage is 20%.

The study also shows that 40% of women’s clubs in the top European divisions operate independently from men’s clubs.

In this section there are notable geographical differences: clubs in southeastern Europe tend to operate independently from clubs with men’s teams (Israel, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia). On the other hand, in regions such as Belgium, England, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway and Switzerland, all women’s top-flight clubs are fully integrated or cooperate in some way with the men’s section of the club.
