FIFA Men’s World Cup increases 2022/23 injury costs

Data from Howden’s latest men’s European football injury index has found that total injury costs across the top five men's European leagues jumped from approximately £484m to £617m, an increase of almost 30%. Howden said the winter FIFA Men's World Cup was a significant driver of this increase.

Highlighting individual leagues, the report stated: “Again English Premier League clubs led the way on total cost, footing a bill of €288.61m (£255.41m) - 41% of the overall figure. The Bundesliga recorded the next highest figure with absences coming at a cost of €132.15m, €35m more than that of Ligue 1 in third place.”
