Ukrainian Premier League

At number 7 spot in the list of most famou football leagues in the world is the Ukrainian Premier League. Though it hasn’t made much influence as the European Champions League and is yet to find and nurture local talents to put it on the map of major leagues in the world, it has always proven to be a tough fixture for the elite teams of Europe.

The top team in the league, Shakhtar, has defeated elite clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea so it has muscles but the league is not competitive as Shakhtar’s monopoly over the league left little to the excitement of the fans.


Brazil is the mecca of football and this league is the holy grail of the Brazilian fans where great talents like Pele, Ronaldo, Garrincha, Zico, Ronaldinho, Carlos, Neymar, etc began their careers here. This league is the perennial hotbed of talents to be found and thus the quality of football and competitiveness is outstanding.

With an average of 1.23 goals a match, it is one of the most exciting leagues out there. This league also nurtured some of the best prospects in football since its inauguration.


At number 5 in the most famous football leagues in the world is Eredivisie of Netherlands. Despite being the hub of emerging talent for a long time, Eredivisie is not usually recognized as the Top 5 football leagues in the world but statistics stated otherwise.

With an average of 1.7 goals a match, it’s fiercely competitive despite not having a good representation in matches at Europa or the Champions League.

Seria A

The number 4 spot in the most famous football leagues in the world right now is occupied by Serie A of Italy. It’s believed that Serie A in its current condition considering that it was once the finest league in the world and its clubs like Juventus and AC Milan dominated European football. But, now it feels like the glorious time has passed. 

Though the teams still have a bit of their old glory, their aura seems hard to come back. Match-fixing scandals in Serie A and economic recession have spelled doom for this once great league.
