If the machine has come to a halt with the crisis and its adverse effects on the economy of sport, football is the source of wealth. More than 13 billion euros generated in ten years, by the twenty current clubs of the French Ligue 1, according to our calculations at Sportune. And that, without the income from the transfer market, only the operational benefits (ticketing, TV rights, sponsorship, merchandising, etc.).

On average, top teams have earned 673 million euros over the decade, or 67.3 million per season. It is close to the equivalent of the Girondins de Bordeaux, but the teams are clearly not equal in this area. Thus, the PSG exceeds the 4.5 billion euros accumulated over the past 10 years. That is to say, the club in the capital won more, on its own, than the fourteen poorest teams put together; understand from Clermont to the Girondins de Bordeaux.

Behind, there is a close match, between the two Olympics; OL ahead of OM, because Lyon has turned the tide since entering its new setting, Groupama Stadium. Which was inaugurated in January 2016. In the following balance sheet, in June 2016, revenues had increased by 66% on the previous one, in 2015. Paris, Lyon and Marseille all exceed one billion euros in revenue out of ten year.

Conversely, the promoted Clermont has not yet crossed the threshold of 100 million euros. He should come close at the end of this exercise. RC Strasbourg is ahead of him, because the Alsatian club, although it is now firmly established in Ligue 1, since 2017, has spent several years (from 2010 to 2016) in the world of amateur football, obviously much less remunerative.
