What an announcement from Lucerne. Most of the Clubs in the Super League like nothing to say about what is happening to you, when the football season may not be played due to the Coronavirus to the end. The Young Boys all the same: "The existence of YB would not be threatened."
Quite different but it looks at the FC Luzern . He responds to the question of whether the Club could cope with a canceled season financially: "Without additional support from third parties (such as shareholders of the club or the League) this would be for FC Lucerne, on the basis of its own capital is very difficult."
Who stuffs the holes?
Say: The FCL is in need of someone to him the holes stuffs, the income arise due to lack of Match. And it would look no different in a season that would be played with the spirit of play to the end. A variant with the ever-increasing number of Infected people in Switzerland, more and more realistic. And in the empty home stadium, the Lucerne would lose even additional money.
FCL-President Philipp Studhalter says: "We would have to expect that a single spirit game would cost in their own stadium, around 250'000 Swiss francs: The Ticketing revenue of around 150'000 would lack, at the same time, we need to invest for the organization, the safety, the light, and Another about 100'000 Swiss francs."
the advantage of The FCL: - Even if the shareholder base is divided, the main shareholders, however, have enough money, you could, in an emergency, zeroing.
looks Differently in Clubs such as Xamax or Thun. The new Burger write: "If there is a season, crash, early, decided, can minimize the financial consequences." In new castle is thought to short-time working for club employees. But here, too, is clear: "If the expenses remain the same and no revenue flow, the situation is very complicated." The new Burger that they take per home game, around 180'000 francs.
And in tuna? There, the leaders are shaking, especially the Derby against Young Boys, which would leave you with viewers around 70'000 Swiss francs in Pure revenue. Other pairings are of less weight. Luthi says: "A few mind games we could bridge." But only if then again, games with viewers can take place.
Otherwise, it looks quite gloomy in the Swiss club football. No wonder, considering the League, the Federal Council of subsidies to ask. In the Tamedia-Podcast "third half," said League CEO Claudius Schäfer: "Even if the sounds for many of the absurd, is something we need to discuss."
