With the Bundesliga championship just in sight, the share price of the Borussia Dortmund (BVB) football club recorded a sharp rise at the beginning of the week. After the share price rose by around 16 percent to 5.20 euros on Monday, its highest level since September 2021, the share certificates continued to gain in value on Tuesday. In the morning, BVB shares were temporarily quoted at 5.59 euros, which corresponded to an increase of 7.5 percent.

So far in 2023, the share price has risen by a good 40 percent. Of the few analysts who keep an eye on BVB shares with investment recommendations, all voted "buy" even before last weekend. Over a longer period of time, however, the share price remains clearly in the red. Three years ago, the share certificate cost 6.20 euros, around 16 percent more than after Monday's price increase.

After the win against Augsburg at the weekend and the defeat of FC Bayern, who had been leading the table until then, against Leipzig, the Black and Yellows pushed past the record champions from Munich in the Bundesliga table. They now have it in their own hands on the last matchday to bring the championship trophy back to Dortmund after an eleven-year break. The prerequisite for this is a win against ninth-placed Mainz 05 in front of their home crowd. The Bavarians play away at the tenth 1.FC Cologne.

Borussia Dortmund is also making economic progress again and is doing better business again after a difficult time in the Corona pandemic. In the third quarter of the 2022/23 financial year, which runs until the end of June, BVB generated revenue of €100.8 million, compared with €64.2 million in the same quarter of the previous year.

Consolidated earnings before taxes (EBIT) amounted to EUR 27.4 million compared to EUR 14.6 million in the same period of the previous year. Analysts at Nuways spoke of a strong improvement in growth and profitability. The Champions League, for which BVB has qualified again, secures further lucrative income.
