strong revenue growth, but record losses…


PSG would have lost 369 million euros in the 2021-2022 season. The increase in its income generated by its plethoric recruitment in the summer of 2021 was a priori not enough to offset the increase in the wage bill and rebalance its budget.

According to information collected by Football Benchmark, PSG ended the 2021-2022 financial year with a huge deficit. The Parisian club would have lost 369 million euros over the past financial year, much more than the budget of its competitors in Ligue 1. A record for a Ligue 1 formation.

The website also emphasizes the positive aspects of Parisian accounts. The leaders of PSG would have managed to reach 670 million euros in overall revenue. That is 18% more than the 2020-2021 total. He would thus appear on the European podium of champion clubs, with Manchester City and Real Madrid.

The highest payroll in history

In detail, PSG would have obtained 399 million euros on derivative products and partnerships signed by the capital club. The contract signed with Nike, providing between 60 and 80 million euros per season, weighs particularly heavily on this amount. This is the biggest commercial income of the champion clubs studied here, ahead of Manchester City (€373m) and Bayern Munich (€368m). PSG would also have collected 131 million euros with the ticket office. The Parisian formation is again at the top of the ranking.

The abysmal losses of the Parisian club would be due to an excessive wage bill: it would reach… 109% of income. It would also have grown from 503 million euros in 2020-2021 to 728 million euros in 2021-2022. This is the highest wage bill in history for a club. It remains to be seen whether Kylian Mbappé’s extension will make it progress further.

The arrival of Luis Campos could spell the end of the enormous expenses of the Parisian owners. The trend seems to be to rebalance the budget in the coming seasons. But this will only be possible in the event of the departure of certain large salaries…
