See How Your Salary Stacks Up To That Of An International Soccer Star

As part of the BBC’s new A Richer World season, a team at the BBC has created The Football Wage Calculator, a tool that one can use to see how their annual salary stacks up to the salaries of International soccer players in the world.

Experts from Deloitte have calculated that the average wage for English Premier League players rose during the 2012-13 season to £1.6m. That averages £31,000 per week, more than the average annual salary of the UK worker.

The BBC’s ‘A Richer World’ explores wealth inequality and poverty around the world.

All statistics used in this tool are taken from the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Try the tool for yourself to see how you measure up.
