The giallorossi made important important steps forward having exponentially increased their revenue. Roma earned €250m last season.
Football is largely driven by money. Although sporting directors try to discover talents around the world, top players can be purchased only by having a solid financial stability.
The Roma executives are implementing a strategic approach sustainable over time. As had said the general manager of the Lupi, Mauro Baldissoni, a few weeks ago, “Our project is developed on essential economic rules. If revenues can not exceed costs, we have to make choices on players. Revenues resulting from the non-participation to the Champions League would cause the reduction of costs but always trying to maintain high or growing competitiveness.”
Roma are one of the top 20 clubs by revenue in world football as highlighted by the Deloitte Football Money League report. The giallorossi joined Real Madrid (€750.9m), Barcelona (€690.4m), and Manchester United (€666m) which are currently on the first three steps of the podium.
Thanks to their unbelievable performance in the past edition of the Champions League, Roma made €250 million in revenue incrementing by €78m their economic result of the 2016-17 campaign (€171.8m).
Jim Pallotta‘s side is behind Juventus (€349.9m) and Inter (€280.8m) but ahead of Milan (€207.7m).
