I wont how the British Elite league teams compare : P Great work compiling those lists! In some cases a team has a budget of 50 mio just by tv rights, sponsors, merchandising without having sold a single ticket. For example Donbass, Donetsk have more than 4 mln euro. They bought best players from the VHL and not bad players from KHL.

The hockey team has hardly €1 million while the football team has almost €30 million in total budget.

If you compare Rosenborg BK to Rosenborg IHK you will see a great difference.

As I remember the minimum limit budget for a team to enter the KHL is at €10 million.

And if you look at the top European leagues NLA has almost 9 teams that could enter the KHL and Sweden has 2 teams.

Toronto Maple Leafs Budget: €142,1 million Player-salaries: €43,3 million Montreal Canadiens Budget: €123,8 million Player-salaries: €41,8 million New York Rangers Budget: €117 million Player-salaries: €46,3 million Philadelphia Flyers Budget: €91,9 million Player-salaries: €47,8 million Chicago Blackhawks Budget: €91,2 million Player-salaries: €45,6 million Detroit Red Wings Budget: €90,4 million Player-salaries: €46,3 million Vancouver Canucks Budget: €90,4 million Player-salaries: €45,6 million Boston Bruins Budget: €83,6 million Player-salaries: €43,3 million New Jersey Devils Budget: €79 million Player-salaries: €41,8 million Calgary Flames Budget: €74,4 million Player-salaries: €44,8 million Los Angeles Kings Budget: €74,4 million Player-salaries: €38,7 million Ottawa Senators Budget: €72,9 million Player-salaries: €45,6 million Dallas Stars Budget: €72,2 million Player-salaries: €34,9 million Minnesota Wild Budget: €69,9 million Player-salaries: €40,2 million Pittsburgh Penguins Budget: €69,1 million Player-salaries: €42,5 million San Jose Sharks Budget: €66,8 million Player-salaries: €43,3 million Edmonton Oilers Budget: €66,1 million Player-salaries: €43,3 million Anaheim Ducks Budget: €64,6 million Player-salaries: €41 million Washington Capitals Budget: €62,3 million Player-salaries: €44,8 million Colorado Avalanche Budget: €62,3 million Player-salaries: €37,2 million Buffalo Sabres Budget: €61,5 million Player-salaries: €41 million St Louis Blues Budget: €60 million Player-salaries: €38 million Florida Panthers Budget: €57,7 million Player-salaries: €37,2 million Tampa Bay Lightning Budget: €57,7 million Player-salaries: €36,4 million Columbus Blue Jackets Budget: €57,7 million Player-salaries: €35,7 million Carolina Hurricanes Budget: €57 million Player-salaries: €34,9 million Nashville Predators Budget: €56,2 million Player-salaries: €34,9 million Winnipeg Jets Budget: €53,9 million Player-salaries: €34,9 million Phoenix Coyotes Budget: €50,9 million Player-salaries: €35,7 million New York Islanders Budget: €47,8 million Player-salaries: €29,6 million CSKA Moscow Budget: €52,2 million SKA St. Again, considering how much travel in involved in a KHL season, the KHL's overall budgets cannot be reasonably compared to those of NLA or Elitserien for example, as in the latter two leagues an equal overall budget would allow for much larger amounts of money to be spent on player salaries.

I'm not into economy or anything so I really have no clue, but I suppose a lot of the money just circulate in the teams from season to season.

In Germany the PLAYER budgets for football are (all numbers in euro): 1.

Again, considering how much travel in involved in a KHL season, the KHL's overall budgets cannot be reasonably compared to those of NLA or Elitserien for example, as in the latter two leagues an equal overall budget would allow for much larger amounts of money to be spent on player salaries.

The rest of the leagues has none(with current budget). On another note I read that Stavanger Oilers in the Norwegian Elite League will have a budget of ~€5-6 million next season. That's a middle team budget of SEL and SM-liiga standard.
