Financial Report: RB Leipzig received €100 million capital injection last year despite growing income
8 June 2020
Owner Red Bull provided the German club with a €100 million loan last season.
That was despite a revenue growth of almost €23 million, primarily stemming from the sale of Naby Keita to Liverpool.
Without player sales, however, Leipzig would have recorded a significant loss.
RB Leipzig have revealed their financial results for the 2018/19 season, a year which marked another significant step forward for the Red Bull-owned club who managed to enter the Champions League for the second time through a third place Bundesliga finish.
The club's revenue grew by €22.8 million to €268 million (including player sales), thanks to the sale of Naby Keita to Liverpool for a reported fee of €60 million.
Total operating expenses amounted to €265.4 million, resulting in just a slight profit for the German side.
