Let’s take a look at where the money goes in soccer and who earns it, from endorsement deals to salaries to selling ad space on soccer jerseys. We’ve started to collect and write more and more articles on where the money goes and comes from in the beautiful game.  What do they say, who has the money gets the power. Well, often the same is true in soccer.
