Best football league in the world?

In your opinion, which football league do you think is the best in the world? Take into account the excitement, quality and teams involved with the league's.

Most of the leagues in the poll are European teams because, let's be fair, Europe showcase the best football in the world, but this is all down to opinion so..

For me it's hands down the English Premier League. Not trying to be bias just because I'm from England, but we defiantly have the highest level of competetive football in the world. With teams like Man United, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool etc. Nobody comes even close.

I also think that La Liga, the Spanish league is very overrated! Don't get me wrong, Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two best teams in the world but.. that's all the excitement that there is in La Liga. Serie A (Italy) > La Liga ANY DAY!

Notable teams in major leagues:

Barclays Premier League: Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool.
La Liga: FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid.
Serie A (Italy): AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Roma, Napoli.
Bundesliga: Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund.
Ligue 1: Paris Saint-Germain, Lyon, Lille.
Serie A (Brazil): Santos, Sao Paulo
MLS: LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, Houston Dynamo

Re: Best football league in the world?

It depends what you judge it on. Overall quality? Quality of the best teams? Entertainment value? Atmosphere?

I voted for La Liga for overall quality. It's between that and the Premier League (which has the most money). But I think it's little wonder that all these Spanish players go to England and dominate the league.

Re: Best football league in the world?

I would say premier league. Closer than it used to be in the late 90s, early 00s though.

Re: Best football league in the world?

If you judge in terms of competition then the Premier League is probably superior. United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool & Spurs is a strong top 6 and even the likes of Everton, Newcastle, Stoke, West Brom and others represent teams capable of an upset. The league has really altered from just a few seasons ago when the top 4/5 were virtually unopposed bar the odd shock result. Now I can honestly say there's very few times when you aren't surprised that a big team loses. Its also quite funny that as the Premier League has grown in terms of competiton, La Liga has reverted back to Barcelona and Real dominating whereas just a few years ago both sides were often beaten by Sevilla, Atletico, Villareal, Deportivo, Valencia and other sides like Getafe.

That being said, if you're asking me what's the best league in terms of atmosphere, philosophy and way the game is played/controlled then I can't see any answer other than the Bundesliga. So much freedom and community spirit between club officials and the fans, the grounds are getting bigger and more profitable whilst still keeping prices remarkably low (8.50 per game to watch Dortmund, 1.50 more than it is for me to attend a FCUM home game).

In the recent protests in Germany due to some politicians proposing amendments to standing laws, I actually found out Dortmund club officials worked together with the fans to create protests/banners and ways of promoting their message: compare that to Arsenal fans this weekend marching before the game at home to Swansea all by themselves with no help from the club (though tbf the club would hardly back protests against the prices they set) and its just astounding how German fans promote unity and cohesion to ensure the spirit of the game is upheld and that foreign investors cannot secure a majority share.
