Depends, some brazilian players went pro when 15years old and played untill 42.

I'd guess an average career last around 15 years, but 20+ year careers are not uncommon.
Most players turn pro at 18 and i'd guess the average age for retirement is between 33-35 depending on the player. 126.96.36.199 10:56, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
