Borussia Dortmund is returning to the UEFA Champions League in the coming 2019/2020 season. The team qualified directly for the lucrative group stage of the competition by virtue of its second-place finish last season. The club is thus continuing its run of successive appearances in international competitions, which stretches back to the 2010/2011 season and now includes two appearances in the UEFA Europa League and eight in the UEFA Champions League.
Success on the pitch also goes hand in hand with financial performance. Borussia Dortmund again demonstrated its economic stability during the year as it generated net profit for the year for the ninth consecutive time.
