Elkann bet on the winning force of Juventus
«Juventus in a position of strength in the panorama of European football«. Exor president John Elkann writes this in a letter addressed to the shareholders of the proprietary holding company, among the various activities of the Juventus club. “We believe – reads – that Juve is well positioned in a sector where the extraordinary growth in revenues of the last ten years has not translated into sufficient profitability. Juventus also begins the next phase of its development path with a strong position in the panorama of European football» said.
2019 – continues the letter – was a very positive year for Juventus, both on and off the pitch. From a commercial point of view, revenues increased to 621 million euros (in 2018 they were 505 million, + 23%) and the diversification strategy continued with the opening of the J-Hotel (the first hotel facility in Italy built with the collaboration of a football club) and the opening of a branch in Hong Kong, with the aim of increasing its presence in the Asian market».
From outside everything to running for every goal, even with Juventus if it seems to be played in the height of summer. The return of Merih Demiral – is indeed conceivable towards the beginning of July, in the meantime, he is following a personalized program from home sent to him by the Juventus athletic trainers.
