MOST COMMENTED

The Bundesliga’s 18 teams posted a record-breaking $2.66 billion in revenues for the 2011-2012 season, the German soccer league (DFL) said in its annual report on Wednesday, marking the eighth consecutive time Germany’s first division posted an annual revenue record. The league’s combined profit after tax was close to $74 million, an increase of 7.2 percent from the 2010-2011 season, with 14 of the league’s 18 clubs being profitable. Just seven clubs were profitable in the 2009-2010 season.

"The Bundesliga confirmed its sustainable growth and healthy development,” DFL CEO Christian Seifert said. "The League Association, the DFL and the clubs will work intensively on continuing their successful way. The foundations for that are economic rationality as well as aimed investments in athletic performance and infrastructure."

The data also showed that the Bundesliga is the world’s leader in terms of attendance, with an average of 44,293 fans per game last season. The English Premier League is second, with just under 35,000 fans per game.
