The Eredivisie giants Ajax announced the club's financial statements for the 2019/20 season on the official website. Despite the impact of the new crown epidemic, the team only lost 3.1 million euros in total, which was kept within control.
Ajax said that after the most successful season of this century in 2018/19, they ushered in the shortest season of this century. Due to the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, many leagues around the world have ended early.
However, despite the serious impact of the new crown epidemic, thanks to the support of fans and partners, the financial losses last season were still within control. The club’s after-tax profit last season reached 20.7 million euros, which will be added to the team’s reserves, which currently total 120.6 million euros.
The financial statements show that Ajax’s net sales in the 2019/20 season reached 163.2 million euros, which was a decrease of 37.2 million euros from the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The main reason was the poor performance of the European stadium and the impact of the new crown epidemic.
The team’s expenditures in all aspects have increased compared to the previous season, and eventually reached 165.4 million euros. The main reason for the increase was the increase in the team九游会官网登录’s salary costs. In the end, the club’s operating loss in the 2019/20 season reached 3.1 million euros.
Ajax received 84.5 million euros from transfer income last season. This funding mainly came from the transfer of De Ligt to Juventus and the transfer of Dolberg to the French team Nice. Finally, due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, no dividends will be distributed in the 2019/20 fiscal year.
