thumbnail Hello,

Der Rekordmeister are likely to set a new kind of record.

Bayern Munich are expecting to comfortably exceed their previous revenue record with a €350 million turnover during the fiscal year of 2009-10.

"We are still working on the financial statements. But we can assume that we have, for the first time, broken the €300m barrier," CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told business magazine 'Focus Money'.

"We are calculating the consolidated revenues of the Allianz Arena, which will be around €350m."

Bayern's previous sales record was €286.8m, earned during the 2007-08 season. The club is expected to be in the 'black' for a 16th consecutive year.

Rummenigge hailed his team's financial stability in last year's uncertain market: "Frankly, we had no crisis."

Accordingly, the reigning German champions are expected to be among Europe's most profitable clubs of the 2009-10 season, with only Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona expected to exceed their revenue.
