Global Following

According to The Federation of International Basketball Associations (FIBA), a minimum of 450 million people play basketball either recreationally or through structured competition around the globe.

The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the mecca of basketball, and the league generates hundreds of millions of viewers worldwide with the best talent available on show.

The yearly audience the NBA captivates is nothing short of staggering, as it continues its incline as a money-making machine and global product. International interest has taken the game to new heights, with the competition and revenue increasing with each passing season.

With that being said, let’s dive into just how substantial the numbers are at NBA, college and international level.


The NBA is one of the most popular and profitable sports leagues in the world.

For context, in the 2017/2018 season alone, the league brought in one billion unique viewers worldwide. Additionally, 35% of the visitors to the NBA’s official website come from fans outside of North America.

As it stands, the NBA is the third most financially successful league in the world, trailing only the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB), both of which are in the US also.

The Philadelphia 76ers were the highest attended franchise in the league last season, with a whopping 838,092 spectators attending 41 home games. In comparison, the Brooklyn Nets were the least attended franchise, but still brought in an incredible 612,597 fans into their arena for 41 appearances.

In 2019, all 30 NBA teams generated a mind-blowing combined revenue of $8.76 billion.

The league produces money primarily through television, merchandising, sponsorship, ticket sales and subscriptions on a yearly basis. As of 2019, the 30 teams making up the NBA had an average valuation of $2.12 billion each.

Ranking the Most Valuable NBA Teams in 2020:

As of 2020, the NBA’s main sponsors are Nike and State Farm. Brand revenue generated by Nike for the first two months of the season was an insane $143 million, with 99% of Nike’s value coming from logo exposure on jerseys. State Farm came in at $58 million after the insurance company sponsored the NBA’s Rising Star and All-Star games during All-Star weekend in Chicago. Moving down the list, Gatorade generated a total value of $36 million as the official sports drink of the league, and Tissot the official timekeeper of the association brought in $16.7 million.

The New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors are the two franchises generating the most money league-wide, at $472 million and $440 million respectively. The Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are ranked the most valuable teams in the league, and understandably so given they are the largest markets.

There are 30 NBA teams, and 20 of those owners are billionaires.

As you can see, the stars of the league are well taken off, but none of this is made possible without the deep pockets of NBA owners. To give you some idea of how much money we are talking about here, the 15 richest club owners in the NBA have a combined worth of over $120 billion.

Despite the college basketball players being labelled “student athletes”, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a serious money-making business.

The NCAA generates more than $700 million through ticket sales and television during their tournament each college basketball season. The league keeps roughly 40% off all intakes, and distributes the remaining 60% to the schools that make up the association, most of which goes towards their college basketball fund.

From 2013 to 2019, the NCAA’s “March Madness” tournament (college’s equivalent of the NBA playoffs) saw an average audience of 10.5 million viewers per game.

The main sponsors that aid the functionality of the league include major corporations such as Coca Cola, American Airlines, Gatorade, Gillette, and Kodak. These sponsors fund the overall running of the league, and assist with all expenses related including travel, hotels and apparel.

The best basketball programs in college are typically the most profitable, with Kentucky ($31.2 million), Louisville ($29.2 million), Indiana ($17.1 million) and Duke ($14.6 million) leading the way.

The NCAA doesn’t currently pay their athletes for their efforts on the court, but this is an ongoing grey area given the number of reports coming out of star prospects receiving a wage during their college career.

Unlike the NBA, the NCAA doesn’t have traditional team owners, but as you can see, the need for one is not necessary given the income stream flowing in.

The college basketball system isn’t just one of the most intriguing leagues in the world, it’s also wildly profitable considering their players are not considered full-time professional sportsmen.


Outside of the US, basketball has also grown into one of the most popular and profitable sports throughout the rest of the world.
Given its engagement, it’s hard to put a collective dollar amount on what the game is worth on international waters. This becomes even more difficult considering the NBA is broadcasted in over 200 countries and nearly 40 languages worldwide, with countries also having their own domestic league.

Having said that, the EuroLeague has long established itself as the benchmark for basketball outside the NBA. The EuroLeague is the top-tier European professional basketball competition made up of the very best franchises throughout all of Europe.

In 2019, the EuroLeague generated approximately €511 million.

That number is expected to double in the next seven years, given its upward trajectory. By 2025, the basketball league is expected to generate €1.1 billion in revenue annually, as its global appeal spreads throughout the world.

Basketball powerhouses Barcelona, CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid are worth €41 million, €40.7 million and €40 million respectively. These numbers are even more impressive considering on average 8,780 spectators attend each basketball game across the league.

With large revenue streams, the basketball league can afford to pay their players handsomely.

Highest-paid Basketball Players in Europe:

1. Nikola Mirotic - €5.4 million.
2. Alexey Shved at €4 million.
3. Edy Tavares at €3 million.
4. Nando De Colo - €2.6 million.

Chinese Basketball

The Chinese Basketball Association, often abbreviated as CBA, is the first-tier professional men's basketball league in China. It is widely regarded as the pre-eminent professional men's basketball league in Asia. The league is commonly known by fans as the CBA, and this acronym is even used in Chinese on a regular basis. A few Chinese players who competed in the CBA in the early stages of their careers – including Wang Zhizhi, Mengke Bateer, Yao Ming, Yi Jianlian, and Sun Yue – have also played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The defending champions from the 2016-17 season were the Xinjiang Flying Tigers.

Concluding Remarks

With each passing season, the game of basketball continues to undergo increases in interest and attention from all corners of the world. As a result, ridiculously large amounts of money are generated annually, creating a wide range of opportunities and possibilities.

Needless to say, the money involved in the NBA is virtually inconceivable and amazingly, we may only be scratching the surface of what is yet to come. The availability of this valuable domain, in one of the biggest sports industries in the world, is not an opportunity that arises often. This could be once in a lifetime - don't miss out.
