Sports Business – Bayern Munich Profitable: Bayern Munich were the only title winners in Europe’s eight major soccer leagues to turn a profit in the coronavirus-disrupted 2020-21 season, a study from auditing firm KPMG showed on Wednesday. KPMG’s European Champions Report claims that all champions scrutinised in the report recorded a decrease in their operating revenues – Follow all Football News LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN

Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Porto registered a double-digit year-on-year drop, while Bayern München, Liverpool and Real Madrid reported more modest decreases in operating revenues, mainly due to their ability to increase commercial income.

The German and the Spanish champions have also been rare exceptions in the entire football industry as they managed to register net profits, while the other clubs saw significant losses for the financial year, which ended in May/June 2020.

KPMG’s European Champions Report: The Bundesliga champions just scraped into the black with an after tax profit of 1.8 million euros ($2.0 million), also recording the lowest ratio of staff costs to operating revenue at 58%.

“While the reopening of stadia and some major commercial deals signed recently may provide some optimism … the pandemic only magnified the financial sustainability issues and fragility of the football ecosystem,” KPMG’s global head of sports Andrea Sartori said.

  • Exemplifying those problems, Serie A winners Inter Milan posted an annual loss of 245.6 million euros on operating revenues of 347.5 million
  • La Liga champions Atletico Madrid lost 111.7 million euros on revenues of 349.6 million.

KPMG’s European Champions Report: Topping the revenue table were Premier League champions Manchester City, generating 644.2 million euros, a rise of 17% from the previous season, the study showed.

City, who reached the final of the Champions League, also leapfrogged local rivals Manchester United (557 million euros) for the first time.

Bayern were second behind City with revenues of 597.5 million euros, while Turkish Super Lig winners Besiktas had the lowest revenue among the eight champion clubs with 59 million euros.

KPMG’s European Champions Report: Six of the clubs increased broadcasting revenues, benefiting from deferred income related to matches postponed from the 2019-20 season and played after June 2020.
