The board of directors at Borussia Dortmund have made announcements this morning regarding the club’s finances ahead of the transfer window opening on Monday as preparations begin for the 2015-16 season.

First Team Manager Gray Surman has been given an initial transfer fund of £15.85m, and the wage budget is set at £1.33m per week (current spends £1.2m p/w). 100% of any fees raised will be made available, and should the current wage total remain constant, then a £20.2m transfer kitty can be spent excluding any fees received.

The club made a total loss of £13.2m last season, but prize money has now been paid by UEFA and DFL meaning that the club has made a profit of £28m in June alone. The club’s current balance is £79.26m, with £1.04m being raised through the club’s membership scheme, a similar amount as last season.

The board announced that dividends totalling £13m will be paid to shareholders, with the turnover for the last financial year being approximately £228m.

The 1.Bundesliga fixture list will be released on 20 June. The opening day of the season will take place on 22 August, with the DFL-Supercup at Schalke scheduled for 25 July.
