Organized annually since 1991, this Swiss organization evaluates its criteria for club competitiveness in national and continental tournaments.
The Brasileirão was voted the best league on the planet last year, but in the latest list, based on data from January 1 to December 31, 2023, it slipped to fourth place. Despite this decline, it is still considered the best among non-Europeans.
Italy's Serie A now holds the top spot, marking the twelfth time the list has been in existence. In second place, in the same position as last year, is the Premier League, while Spain's LaLiga maintains third place and remains on the podium.
