Inter announce a very large deficit for the 2021-22 season

Second in the last Italian championship, Inter Milan suffered a heavy loss of 140 million euros at the end of the 2021-22 financial year. A deficit which is explained by the consequences of the health crisis, but which should be partly compensated by the Chinese owner, Suning.

Inter Milan announced on Wednesday that they had recorded losses amounting to 140 million euros during the 2021-22 season, down from the previous year marked by the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis. During the 2020-21 season, the Serie A club, owned by the Chinese group Suning, posted record losses of 245 million euros.

This new deficit, explains the club, is linked to the repercussions of the health crisis mainly during the first half of last season. In 2021-22, Inter also recorded an increase in its turnover to 439.6 million euros, 75 million more than in the 2020-21 season.

The Milanese want to remain ambitious

According to the Milanese club, « the owner has already officially expressed his commitment to support the group » by covering the losses. « The club’s two main objectives remain unwavering: to keep the team competitive at the highest level in all competitions and to strengthen its financial position, » according to Inter.

On Friday, another Serie A tenor, Juventus Turin, announced that its accounts remained in the red for the fifth consecutive year after recording a record loss of 254.3 million euros last season.
