Ligue 1 has officially resumed play after cancellation due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We have taken a closer look at the state of the league's commercial affairs.

Champions League finalists PSG made more than €450 million in commercial income during 2019, which is roughly 70 per cent of the club's total turnover.

The remaining 19 clubs generated an average commercial income below 20 per cent of PSG's figure and a combined total of €248 million, revealing just how superior PSG have become in terms of branding and commercialisation.
