AFF, Conspicuous Profits from the Match with Italy
Albanian Daily News
Published October 11, 2017
Beside the luxury of facing one of the world’s best teams the Albania - Italy challenge resulted highly positive for Albania even in the financial aspect. An approximate calculation of the incomes generated by tickets sale shows that Albanian Football Federation (AFF) cashed a sum of ALL 51.6 Million, probably the highest figure of these last years.
This conspicuous figure was the result of tickets expensive prices and the high interest shown by the fans that filled “Loro Boriçi” stadium stairs. Another element that influenced this increase in the collected sum of money was the fact that this time AFF was not obligated to provide the fan’s groups, especially the ‘Red and Black Albanian Fans” with discounted tickets.
