In Senegal, despite a process of professionalization begun in 2009, the football championship is struggling to find financial autonomy that would allow it to face the many challenges related to the demands of modern sport. The aim of this study is to analyze the economic situation of the Senegalese Professional Football League in order to propose some areas for improvement. In order to analyze the structure of its revenues, interviews with league and federation officials were conducted. The analysis of the Senegalese Professional Football League's revenues over five seasons shows a mixed financing model combining public funds with private sector revenues, with a model that is heavily dependent on subsidies. The low attendance at football stadiums is an obvious obstacle to the development of ticketing revenues. It also has a negative impact on sponsorship revenues and does not encourage the broadcasting of matches and thus the marketing of hypothetical media rights.
