The more national leagues and international leagues more

One of the most distinctive facts about a league is the number of foreigners in them.. It is often said that a league competition is powerful while more foreigners tend to accumulate. This saying, but nevertheless, It should be taken with tweezers because if we look at the following paragraphs we see how this is not always true.

In fact, nowadays, the league with the highest index of foreigners is the Canadian. La Canadian Championship acumula 88 of 124 foreign players. Total, a 71% from the league comes from outside. This data is helped because there are a total of 31 American players in the competition. Even, there are teams that only feature four or five local players.

The second league with the most presence of foreigners is one of the strongest in the world, but most. It is about, as many intuit, of the Premier League that accumulates 346 of 505 players from outside the Islands. Total, a 68,5 that comes from outside. Especially, notable is the case of France and Spain, which with 33 Y 32 players lead imports from the Anglo-Saxon country.

In canada, most of the players are foreigners.
In canada, most of the players are foreigners.

The third league with the most foreign players is the Cypriot which enjoys 110 of 174 (63,2%). Portugal 19 football players, Brazil with 17 and Spain with 10 they take the cake of the main nationalities. If Cyprus is the third, the fourth must be found in Italy. Serie A, 296 of 541 football players (54,7%) they are from outside. The presence of South Americans stands out as there are 48 Brazilians and as many Italians.

Total, exist 12 leagues in the world where the presence of foreigners exceeds that of nationals as is also the case of the Belgian, with a 50,2% foreign penetration. With regard to the most important leagues there are data of all kinds. In the spanish league, 185 of 480 players are foreigners. A low figure and percentage (38,5%) if we compare it with France (44,4%), Russia (47, 8%) or the Bundesliga (46%) but stop if we look at what happens in Argentina (55 of 628, 8,8%) the Brazil (47 of 719, 6,5% and a single European).

Precisely, the league with fewer foreigners (if we discount those that prohibit it) It is the Brazilian Serie B where there is hardly a 1,4% (9 of 661). And is that Brazil, it was always about exporting rather than importing.
