Borussia Dortmund ended the 2020/2021 financial year with a net loss for the year of EUR 72,810 thousand.
Taking into account the net loss for the year, the equity ratio is calculated at 51.64%. As at 30 June 2021, Borussia Dortmund held unrestricted cash funds of EUR 1,725 thousand. At the end of the reporting period, Borussia Dortmund had access to an additional EUR 120,000 thousand in overdraft facilities, some of which had been drawn down.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continued to weigh heavily on profitability and ultimately earnings in the 2020/2021 season. The effects of the pandemic are particularly clear in match operations and conference, catering and miscellaneous. The transfer business has also taken a major hit. Given this, business development during financial year 2020/2021 was less than satisfactory.
