In the past financial year, Borussia Dortmund invested EUR 152,736 thousand in intangible assets. This amount was invested almost entirely in the player base.
Cash payments for property, plant and equipment during the same period amounted to EUR 6,205 thousand and primarily included fixtures and expansions at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, the administration building as well as at the training ground in Brackel.
The focus of future investments will firstly continue be on the project to expand BVB's training centre. The training ground and youth academy will be enhanced in stages over the period up to 2021. This involved acquiring further adjacent land and opening a new fitness area. Other steps are currently being implemented.
Secondly, Borussia Dortmund is still designing its new fan and youth centre which will be located on the Strobelallee. The centre will offer a variety of programmes intended above all to improve communication with the fans and to establish it as a type of community centre for fans. There are also plans to further develop and expand the infrastructure and the areas in and around SIGNAL IDUNA PARK.
