Deloitte: Following an absence from last year’s Money League top 20, AS Roma climb nine places to 15th with record revenue of €250m, up €78.2m (46%) overall. A strong season on the pitch saw AS Roma reach the Semi-finals of the Champions League, resulting in the club being the recipient of the second highest UEFA distribution(€83.8m) and overall broadcast revenue growth of €52.2m, having failed to qualify for the Group Stage in the previous season.
The positive effect from strong performances in UEFA club competitions was further underlined by matchday and 800 commercial growth of 44% (€10.9m) and 46% (€15.1m) respectively, with the latter including an up-front payment from Qatar Airways who agreed to become the club’s shirt front sponsor from the start of the 400 2018/19 season.
We expect the club to retain a Money League position next year, having already secured qualification to the Champions League Round of 16. The potential revenue increase from moving to the club’s proposed new stadium is not expected until at least the start of the 2020/21 season, meaning a continued presence and strong performances in the Champions League will be critical if the club are to retain top 20 status in future editions.
