The French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is experiencing negative repercussions after the departure of Lionel Messi and Neymar from the club.
According to information from getfootballnewsfrance.com, the first thing that Parisians noticed was a significant decrease in their social media followers, with 10-15 million fewer followers.
Furthermore, several PSG sponsors are questioning their cooperation with the club after Messi and Neymar’s departure. The cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com insisted on revising the financial terms of their deal a year before the contract’s expiration. Qatari sponsors, including Qatar Airways, have also slowed down their contributions.
It is noted that PSG’s commercial department is having difficulty finding sponsors for the club’s base and advertising on the back of the jerseys.
In addition, the departure of the Argentine and the Brazilian has led to a slowdown in ticket sales for PSG’s home matches. Last season, tickets were sold out within 48 hours, but the situation is very different now. For example, tickets for the match against “Strasbourg” were available for three weeks.
To recap, Messi left PSG this summer after spending two seasons at the club. Currently, the Argentine is playing in the United States for “Inter Miami.”
Neymar played for Paris Saint-Germain since 2017, and during the summer transfer window, the forward moved to Saudi Arabian club “Al-Hilal.”
