Coronavirus Dealt Heavy Losses to Borussia Dortmund

Coronavirus caused a significant loss for Borussia Dortmund, with Hans-Joachim Watzke stressing the need for fans to return.

“The entire past decade has been very good, both athletically and economically,” said chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke, with Dortmund making a €17.4m profit in the previous year. “In economic terms, we have always written black numbers in these years. Then coronavirus came.”

The Dortmund board presented the results, explaining the deficit was due to this season’s coronavirus pandemic, which meant BVB only played 12 league matches at a Signal Iduna Park capacity.

Borussia Dortmund posted a loss of €43.9million for the financial year 2019-20, announced via the official website of the Bundesliga team on Monday.
