Private Jets Are Running Low for Premier League Soccer Teams

"Before Chelsea's 3-0 loss to Leeds United earlier this month, Thomas Tuchel's squad had to fly to Yorkshire in three 14-seater planes." Because there was a technical issue with the original aircraft that had been booked, the coaching staff followed by bus."


Teams have been forced to pay through the nose for air travel, in addition to switching to smaller planes and even buses. According to the Atlantic, some teams have been forced to "pay up to three times the cost" of the equivalent trip a year ago.


One Premier League executive told The Atlantic, "Nobody saw it coming." "It hit us all at once — a real conspiracy of circumstances that caught everyone off guard."

However, according to The Atlantic, the league has been dealing with a plane shortage this season. According to the website:


"While most of us will never have to consider it, a lack of private planes is causing a real headache for Premier League clubs."

That means there will always be at least one side that must travel. And, in a country the size of Oregon, that obviously necessitates a fleet of private jets to transport the players, coaching staff, and management across the country.

The league, where the average weekly salary for a player is around $51,000, pits 20 soccer teams from England (and occasionally Wales) against each other in either home or away matches.

Football is played differently in Europe, where you actually use your feet to play the game. The Premier League, the top league in this crazy sport known as "soccer" in England, is currently facing a dire challenge: a shortage of private planes.
