Atalanta are not just a success on the field, but above all of it, registering profits of €26.4m, their third consecutive year with over €20m.
According to the analysis on their books performed by Calcio e Finanza, the Bergamo club generated €188.6m in revenue for the year ending December 31, 2019.
That is an increase of 21 per cent from last year’s €155.7m, largely due to their Champions League qualification.
They pocketed €3.9m from international match tickets, €13.5m from Serie A and €1.8m from the Coppa Italia.
There were also €89.9m generated from TV rights, of which €29.6m were in the Champions League.
The sales of players including Franck Kessie, Bryan Cristante and Andrea Petagna provided €38.7m in transfer profits.
Although the costs went up too in the last year, increasing 23 per cent to €147.6m, it still allowed Atalanta to run at a profit of €26.4m.
