Dortmund announce record revenue

Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund have smashed their revenue record as they announced that they have broken the €100 million barrier for the first time.

Dortmund, who won the Bundesliga for the first time since 2002 last season, have previously flirted with bankrupcy, but revealed that revenue has reached €101.4 million for the six months to December last year.

That figure is €30 million more than compared to the same period in 2010, leaving them with a pre-tax profit of €16.7 million.

The Bundesliga leaders have agreed to sign 22-year-old winger Marco Reus from Borussia Moenchengladbach for a reported €17.5 million in the summer, but the club were quick to state that they could afford the fee.

"Borussia has developed itself economically and on a sporting level continuously over the last few years," Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said. "Given the current figures it's clear that the transfer of Marco Reus does not pose any economic risk."
