In the last seasons has been discussed, in several European leagues, the presence of a continuously decreasing number of national players in clubs’ starting 11 and the negative consequences of this fact on national teams performance.
Football Industry analyzed the starting 11 of 148 clubs from 8 different leagues in the first 3 matchdays of 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 in order to:
1 – Check the average number of national players in clubs’ starting 11;
2 – Analyze the disparity between clubs with higher and lower reputation with regard to their bet on local players;
3-Verify the standard starting 11 of each league (by nationalities);
4-Verify which teams have more and less local players in each league; and
5-Check the field position occupied by the Portuguese players chosen for the starting 11 of the clubs competing in Liga ZON Sagres.
In the analyzed period, Eredivisie (Dutch League) was the one with a higher number of national players in its clubs’ starting 11, recording an average of 7.3 players in 2013/2014 and 7.0 in 2012/2013. The Spanish and French Leagues (Liga BBVA and Ligue 1) complete the podium having presented, on average, 6.7 and 5.8 players in each starting 11 in 2013/2014. The German (Bundesliga), Belgian (Jupiler Pro League), English (Barclays Premier League), Italian (Serie A) and Portuguese (Liga ZON Sagres) leagues were also considered in this research.
A complete version of the study can be read below.

According to the data provided by the Liga de Fútbol Profesional and the newspaper Marca, Barcelona and Real Madrid have, at this early stage of the season, an overall salary cost close to 190 million per year. The disparity between these two giants and the other clubs from Liga BBVA (Spanish League) is also clear in this point since Atlético Madrid, ranked third in this list, only presents a wage cost between 65 and 67 million Euros (about 35% of the first two).
At the beginning of this year, was agreed a salary cap for the Spanish clubs according to their revenues.

At the beginning of the 2013/2014 season there were some changes in the current shirt sponsors of Barclays Premier League clubs. Simultaneously, most of the annual figures have also been updated.
At this time, the total amount reaches approximately 197.9 million Euros with 77% of this value belonging to the six top clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea. These figures contrast with a total amount of approximately 175.3 million Euros in 2012/2013 (61% belonging to the aforementioned six clubs) representing an increase of about 13%.

In the document below, we present the amounts received in the past four years by the 32 teams participating in the 2013/2014 edition of UEFA Champions League.
These values ​​allow us to assess the differences between and within groups. Thus, groups H (Barcelona, AC Milan, Ajax and Celtic) and D (Bayern Munchen, CSKA Moskva, Manchester City and Viktoria Plzen) are the ones that, in aggregate, gathered the highest amount of revenues distributed by UEFA in the last four seasons. Group G is on the opposite side (FC Porto, Zenit, Atletico Madrid and Austria Wien) gathering only 98.4 million Euros. Group D also includes the top-team with the largest share in the total group’s bonus (Bayern Munchen).
Regarding the disparity between clubs from the same group, considering the difference in the weight of each club compared with the total bonuses of the group, it appears that groups F (Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Marseille and Napoli) and C (SL Benfica, Olympiacos, Paris Saint-Germain and Anderlecht) are the most balanced ones. Group A (Manchester United, Shakhtar Donetsk, Bayer Leverkusen and Real Sociedad) is at the opposite side.
Check the document below for a more detailed analysis.

Typically, certain leagues present a very significant players rotation between national and foreign clubs. This situation tends to occur mainly in leagues considered less competitive and known as markets in which clubs aim to develop young talents and sell them to teams with more financial power.
In this sense, Football Industry compared clubs’ lineups on the last matchday of 2012/2013 with the ones presented on matchday 1 of 2013/2014. We analyzed the following competitions: Bundesliga (Germany), Liga BBVA (Spain), Ligue 1 (France), Eredivisie (Netherlands), Barclays Premier League (England) and Liga ZON Sagres (Portugal).
GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
In general terms, Spanish and Portuguese leagues present the highest average number of changes in the starting 11, mainly with players who were not part of the squads in 2012/2013.
Barclays Premier League and Bundesliga, considered, at this time, the most competitive leagues, show the lowest average number of lineup changes, equally distributed between players who were part of the squads in 2012/2013 and were signed for 2013/2014.

IMPACT OF A NEW COACH
When analyzing the impact of the arrival of a new coach at the start of 2013/2014, we can observe that, on average, only in the Netherlands and Portugal this situation led to a higher number of changes in the starting 11.
