How to upgrade your power football equipment with the best brands
It might not be the most glamorous of sport, but the football pitch is a major component of most footballers lives.
You may be familiar with the players, the stadium and the pitch itself.
But what about the players themselves?
In most cases, the players are not only the most visible part of the pitch, but also the most expensive.
The average salary for a professional footballer in the UK is £35,000 a year, according to a survey by consultancy company Ivey.
In Australia, where players have a guaranteed wage, it’s around $100,000.
In the US, it can be in the thousands of dollars.
And it’s not just the players’ salaries that have changed.
The modern football pitch has become much more than a physical structure, but a social, cultural and emotional place.
We live in a society that has shifted away from a place of physical contact.
We no longer think of ourselves as being physically at home.
In many ways, we have lost touch with the reality of our physical surroundings.
But the reality doesn’t have to be that way.
For many, football is a way to escape that reality, or at least reconnect with it.
