BVB continue to strengthen financially along with results on the pitch.
Dortmund have secured a record level of turnover in the 2012/13 financial year, making a profit of €53.5m as they continue to grow both on and off the pitch.
According to Sky Sport journalist Stephan Schauble, the Bundesliga giants made a record turnover of €305m, while profits increased to €53.5m over the same period.
The club’s revenue is up 34% from the previous year, as they continue to re-establish themselves as a force not only in Germany but also in Europe.
Having secured success domestically, Jurgen Klopp’s men reached the Champions League final last season, and with smart moves in the transfer market also helping them sustain a profitable model, the future undoubtedly looks bright for the club.
BVB received €52m in transfer fees following the sales of Mario Gotze and Ivan Perisic, but increases in match-day revenue ($45m), TV rights deals (€88m) and commercial agreements (€121m) mean the club continue to break records internally.
While the wage bill has also increased, the club have managed to off-set that with the increases in revenue elsewhere, thus leading to a more competitive squad for Klopp to work with.
It remains to be seen how the increased level of investment in the playing squad serves the tactician this season, as he hopes to dethrone rivals Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga while also attempting to make an immediate return to the Champions League final.
