Despite the corona crisis, Ajax presents a profit of 20.7 million euros | NOW


Despite the corona crisis, Ajax booked a net profit of 20.7 million euros last season. This is largely due to the transfer of Matthijs de Ligt for 75 million euros to Juventus.

Due to the corona crisis and the lesser European performance, Ajax saw its turnover decrease in the 2019/2020 financial year by 37.2 million to 162.3 million. The costs increased by two tons to 165.4 million.

That small loss was more than made up for on the transfer market. In the past financial year, Ajax sold De Ligt and Kasper Dolberg (to OGC Nice), among others, for a total of 84.5 million. The transfer of Frenkie de Jong for 70 million euros to FC Barcelona was included in the 2018/2019 financial year.

After deduction of incoming transfers and taxes, a net profit of 20.7 million remains for the Amsterdammers. The profit will be added to the club’s equity, which now stands at 120.6 million.

Years earlier Ajax had recorded record figures

The figures are less rosy than those of the 2018/2019 season, the best financial year in club history.

Ajax then reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and sold De Jong, Justin Kluivert, Maximilian Wöber and Daley Sinkgraven, among others. In that year, the club recorded a net profit of 51.9 million euros.
