Werder Bremen can report a whopping plus for the past 2021/22 financial year. The SVW has probably made more than six million euros in profit.

Great news for Werder Bremen! The SVW closed the past financial year with a large plus in the millions.

That reports the Deichstube. According to this, at the general meeting on November 20, a whopping plus of over six million euros will be announced.

Financially, this is very good news for Werder. In the corona pandemic, a minus of 8.8 million euros had to be accepted for 2020/21, and in 19/20 it was even 23.8 million euros. Of course, Werder was not alone in this – the pandemic had caused financial bottlenecks for all clubs. The plus for 21/22 can now be emphasized all the more positively.

“The numbers are actually very good. It was a tour de force at all levels and the result of hard and focused work,” explained SVW boss Klaus Filbry in the spring and already indicated a plus in the 21/22 financial year.

Filbry led then against the Deichstube continues: “In the past one and a half to two years we have had to cope with a loss of income of 80 million euros. We have successfully continued on the path of economic consolidation. It was a triad of reduction in squad costs, high transfer income and savings in all areas.”

Werder must continue to pay attention to the financial situation

However, the financial situation is far from rosy. 17 million euros were generated through a fan bond, 20 million euros through loans. After the direct return to the Bundesliga, no big leaps could be made on the transfer market. A fee was only paid for Jens Stage (four million euros).

The squad costs for the current season amount to just over 30 million euros. Compared to the second division year, it was increased significantly. In the Bundesliga ranking, however, Werder ranks quite low.
