- € 1.2 million relating to the Supercoppa Italiana final won against Juventus in Doha at the end of December 2016.
Revenues from sponsorships declined by €4.9million to €59.79 mln due to the expiration (June 30, 2016) of some sponsorship contracts no longer renewed in the 2016-2017 season. The decline in sponsor revenues was partially offset by the renegotiation of contracts with Emirates (€15.08 mln / €12.87 mln in 2015) and Adidas (€19.67 mln / €19.65 mln in 2015).
Production costs recorded were €294.3 million, down €2.1 million compared to 2015 (€296.4 mln). The decrease is predominantly attributable to wages and salaries.
