Inter are set for a financial windfall after becoming Serie A champions, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As per Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition, the Nerazzurri are expected to receive around €50 million for finishing top in Italy, thanks to various bonuses, prize money and sponsorship deals.
Inter will earn €23.4 million from the distribution of Serie A’s TV rights revenue for finishing first, with another €10 million guaranteed from UEFA’s Champions League market pool.
They are also set to get €15 million from their sponsorship agreements, plus a fee worth possibly €3.5 million for their participation in the Supercoppa Italiana (although this depends on where the fixture is held, in Italy or abroad).
Inter president Steven Zhang will welcome the income as ‘a great breath of fresh air’, the Milan-based paper explained, as the Nerazzurri continue to seek liquidity and a new financial partner.
As per the above figures, they are due to earn €9 million more than last season in terms of sporting bonuses, while their income from sponsors will also shoot up.
On top of the €50 million earned for winning Serie A, Inter will also get €30 million from UEFA for their participation in next season’s Champions League and their historic ranking coefficient.
