If no one knows, I'll (maybe) do the count myself.
You mean club teams? Hard to give the excact number (maybe someone else has some number based on facts here) but just by counting the top elite league teams ( Finland, Russia, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Czech, Slovakia) and you get at around 100 or a tad more then there's Norway, Denmark and Austria, Sweden's 2 tier (is this the only 2-tier European league that is 100% pro) ~50 teams. + some random teams in Slovenia, Italy, Russia's 2-tier Finland's 2-tier (actually one pro team there, heh) + prolly in some countries I missed here.
200 (-20/ +50)professional club teams in Europe would be my quick take on this.
