According to a study by KPMG, a Ligue 1 decision would be synonymous with a shortfall of up to 400 million euros. Nathalie Boy de la Tour, president of the Professional Football League (LFP), and Didier Quillot, its director general, kept repeating this Tuesday evening at a conference call: “the priority of priorities is to finish the championship of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. ” “The biggest principle is to do everything to end June 30, added the DG of the League. But it will be on the 30th or beyond. If we have to go further, we will go and adapt with the clubs, with the players. ” A definitive end to the season would, it is true, be a real disaster for Ligue 1. Evidenced by the study of the audit firm KPMG. According to calculations, the shortfall is between 300 and 400 million euros. A loss synonymous with financial disaster for the clubs of the championship.

The Premier League risks very big

The calculations were made based on an outright cancellation of the last ten days still on the schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic. In detail, losses related to TV rights would be between 150 and 200 million euros, those related to marketing contracts between 100 and 140 million euros and those related to ticketing and other services around matches between 50 and 60 million euros. The shortfall, however, would be even greater among European neighbors. In the Premier League, losses would therefore be around 1.2 billion euros. They would oscillate between 800 and 950 million euros in Liga, between 650 and 750 million in Bundesliga and finally between 550 and 650 million in Serie A.
