In the digital publication Benfica News, this Wednesday, the Reds discuss the accounts of the club and defend that they have “notorious financial solidity”, despite the negative net result of 31.7 million euros in the first part of the season.
“The report and accounts of Benfica, SAD for the 1st half of 2021/22 have already been published. Despite the unusual loss presented, in a rare year in which there have been no significant gains from the sale of player passes, the financial strength of Benfica, SAD is notorious. Equity remains very positive; after all the restrictions motivated by the fight against the pandemic, we are witnessing a gradual return to normal with regard to commercial income; and it can be seen that the increases in personnel costs are due, in part, to a staff enlargement policy which has already begun to be readjusted, but which cannot be implemented abruptly. The economic and financial sustainability of Benfica, SAD is an objective that continues to guide management and this remains guaranteed.
