Global sports salaries database

A new report compiled by, the "Review of Global Sports Salaries", finds that the New York Yankees are the world's highest-paid players in a team sport. The ranking is below. They also have a free sports salaries database that compares athletes’ wages covering a variety of football leagues (soccer) and baseball leagues, plus NBA basketball, NFL football, NHL hockey, IPL cricket, the top 20 earners from each of the ATP and WTA tennis tours, and the top 30 earners from the PGA annual world money list. This data could be interesting to study incentives or market structures.
