The consequences of the health crisis on the economy of French football are nothing more than a bad memory, if we are to believe the accounts of the FFF. After a loss-making 2020-2021 financial yearthe French Football Federation posted a net profit of 900,000 euros for the 2021/2022 season.
The accounts, approved on Saturday at the General Meeting, show current income (excluding allocations for the final stages contested by the various selections) of 274.2 million euros, up 38.5 million euros compared to the 2020-2021 season.
A record envelope paid to amateur football
Expenses amounted to 274.3 million euros, with in particular 104.2 million euros paid to amateur football. This is the first time that this aid has exceeded the symbolic bar of 100M euros. They have increased by 30% compared to five years ago, according to the presentation made by Philippe Diallo, deputy vice-president of the FFF.
Almost all revenue items are thus up, in particular ticketing (+17.4M) after the end of the closed session following health restrictions, partnerships (+6.5M), TV rights (+2.2M ) and licenses (+3.4 M).
