Paris St. Germain Made $164M From Miscellaneous Sales Last Year
Ligue 1 Paris St. Germain "made more money from miscellaneous sales" than from its football income, according to Tariq Panja of BLOOMBERG. PSG’s net loss during the '11-12 season was kept down to €5.5M ($7.2M) because of €125.4M of income from “other products,” according to figures released by French football’s licensing authority, the DNCG. That income is "more than the team made from ticket sales," TV rights and sponsorships put together. They accounted for just €97M. PSG qualified for the quarterfinals of the Champions League this week. Clubs that fail to meet UEFA’s financial rules "face being banned from that competition" from '14, though lesser sanctions are also possible (BLOOMBERG, 3/8).
