The giallorossi are still waiting for a new stadium and in the 2017-18 season, Roma’s matchday annual revenue has been a little disappointing. 

Roma President Jim Pallotta is still waiting for the final approval to build a new facility in the eternal city. The American investor had presented a project about six years ago, but the Italian bureaucracy and the frequent change of political power in the city slowed the process.

According to a research carried out by the Italian outlet Calcio e Finanza, Roma banked about €39 million with the Stadio Olimpico last season. The top Italian side Juventus, instead, made 56m in the 2017-18 campaign.

Although this economic performance of the giallorossi can be considered disappointing, it is still better than that of the two clubs of Milan. Inter and AC Milan have hosted a higher average viewer per match in their stadium, (Inter – 56,000 per game | AC Milan – 40,000 per game).

The factor that must be taken into consideration is the so-called RevPA (Revenue per Attendance). In reference to this parameter, the top Italian clubs reported the following revenue:

  • Juventus (RevPA = 53.43);
  • Roma (37.87);
  • Inter (32.86);
  • AC Milan (29.68).

The top European sides are immensely more productive. As reported by Calcio e Finanza, Barcelona lead the group with a matchday annual revenue of 139.5 million. Real Madrid follow their national rival (123.2m) while Manchester United sit in the third position (124.7m). Although the Red Devils have banked more than the Blancos in the 2017-18 campaign, their RevPA is lower (62.09). Manchester City (64.3m | RevPA 45.63), instead, are ahead of Roma but behind Juventus.
