Counting the four major professional sports leagues in the United States, the NBA can only be ranked third, and the first income is twice that

 The NBA can be said to be one of the most concerned sports events in China, and the Chinese market also contributes about 10% of the NBA's revenue. However, in fact, the NBA can only be ranked third among the four major professional sports leagues in the United States. Coupled with the lack of the Chinese market this time, the NBA's revenue will definitely decrease. So, do you know which four major professional sports leagues are? Let's take a look!


1. NFL (National Football League)


The National Football League is the highest-level sports league in American football, and the annual Super Bowl is the most popular sporting event in the United States. The league was first established in 1920 and was renamed the NFL in 1922. The league consists of 32 teams from different regions and cities in the United States, divided into two federations. Each federation will consist of four divisions, east, west, south and north, and each division has four teams. The same is divided into preseason, regular season and playoffs, only six teams can enter the playoffs. Players selected by the two leagues after the Super Bowl can participate in the Star Game. The United States once conducted a survey and found that the number of people watching the NFL accounted for 25%, which is terrifying.



2. MLB (Professional Baseball League)


The Professional Baseball League is the highest-level professional baseball league in North America, and it is also a professional sports event known as the American national ball. The MLB is divided into two leagues, namely the American League and the National League, with slightly different rules. There are 30 teams in the MLB, 16 in the National League and 14 in the American League. Every year, the championship teams of the various leagues will compete for the championship of the World Series. The survey in the United States showed that 14% of people watched MLB. It can be said that MLB is the second largest league in the United States worthy of its name.



3. NBA (American Professional Basketball League)


The American Professional Basketball League can be regarded as the top basketball tournament in the world. The NBA was established in 1946 and consists of 29 local teams and 1 Canadian team. The NBA is divided into East and West Divisions, each with 15 teams, and only 16 teams can enter the playoffs each season. The NBA was introduced to China in 1986, and it has been more than 30 years now. This year the two sides are separated. The American survey found that 9% of people watch the NBA. Although American basketball has always dominated the world, the NBA is not their first league.



4. NHL (National Hockey League)


NHL is the largest professional ice hockey event in North America and the highest level professional ice hockey event in the world. NHL has a century-old history. It was established in Canada in 1917 and temporarily owns 31 teams, 25 of which are located in the United States. 6 are located in Canada. At least half of the players in the NHL were born in Canada. In recent years, the players in the United States and Europe have been on the rise. The NHL is also divided into two parts, the East and the West, together competing for the world's oldest trophy-the Stanley Cup.



According to a 2017 league income survey, NFL revenue was as high as 13 billion U.S. dollars, MLB revenue was also 10 billion U.S. dollars, NBA annual revenue was 5.9 billion U.S. dollars, and NHL was 3.5 billion U.S. dollars. The NFL's revenue that year was more than twice that of the NBA. Even in the 2017-2018 season, the NBA's revenue was only $8 billion, which is still not as good as the first two leagues.
