A Juventus statement read:

"During the first half of the 2020-2021 financial year, the continuation of the pandemic generated a significant negative impact on revenues (mainly from competitions and products), which can be estimated at approximately 50 million euros (£43.5million).

"Vice versa, the impact on costs was not significant, as the savings related to the lack of competitions were partially offset by costs related to the pandemic (primarily, for health safety and protective devices).
"The first half of the the 2020-21 financial year therefore ended with a loss of €113.7 million (£99.07million) compared to the loss of €50.3 million (£43.83million) in the first half of the previous year."

The Bianconeri have continued to play their games without their fans inside the stadium as the government have restricted spectators from entering the matchday venues.

The club and players agreed to wave off four months of their wages totalling up to £80m to help them cushion their finances between March and June in 2020.

Juve had envisaged a loss in revenue during the mid-season but the club claims it will not affect their transfer plans for 2021.
