In 2016/17, OL Groupe will benefit from revenues relating to its participation in the group stage of the Champions League and from a sharp rise in ticketing revenue relating to OL Park’s operation over a full financial year. Revenue will also be boosted by new sources of recurring revenue from events and B2B seminars.
Olympique Lyonnais Park is expected to generate additional receipts of around €70 million p.a. within 3-5 years of opening, which should place OL Groupe among the top 20 revenue-earning clubs in Europe.
At the same time, the OL Academy remains central to OL Groupe's strategy. The club is increasingly capitalising on the young players coming out of the training academy, the first team's official supplier of players and a source of very significant potential capital gains.
