Even in times of the corona pandemic, the Champions League starter is the club that has earned the most money. First and foremost, the commercial director Stephan Reiter and his team are responsible for this.
50 million euros for cop staff
On the income side, Salzburg generated around 70 million euros less than in the record year 2019/20. This can be explained primarily by the transfer balance, for which sports director Christoph Freund and Co have earned.

Personnel expenses remained stable with expenditures of over 50 million euros. In the meantime, 90 million euros with liabilities of almost 30 million are on the high edge at Salzburg.

Austria Vienna with mega loss
The minus was again big for Austria. The Viennese made a loss of 4.7 million euros. The negative equity at the Violette thus increased to 19.2 million euros. Austria has total liabilities of over 79 million euros. As the league noted, the club has so far only provided unchecked information.
Austria has not yet submitted the annual accounts approved by an auditor. It was not until Monday evening that the club’s committees agreed on final negotiations with a group of investors. This is to avoid bankruptcy with its financial means.

Although Grün-Weiß was eliminated after the group stage, almost seven million euros alone came in prize money in the cash register. After the slight decrease in the previous year, the Hütteldorfer reported a slight plus (700,000 euros) as of June 30, 2021. The liabilities rose (almost 50 million), but so did the equity, which now stands at 15.6 million euros.
Hartberg is at the bottom of the financial list
Number three in terms of sales behind Salzburg and Rapid is Austria with almost 30 million, still well ahead of LASK (23.3), WAC (17.5) and Sturm Graz (14.8). The bottom of the list is TSV Hartberg, which has 5.9 million. WSG Tirol has the lowest personnel costs (3.8 million). Rapid (21.2) is, as expected, the number two behind Salzburg. Austria (13.2) is number three in terms of salaries, but LASK (12.9) is almost as good for its staff.
