In the first half (H1) of the 2021/2022 financial year (1 July 2021 - 31 December 2021), Borussia Dortmund significantly increased its consolidated total operating proceeds and consolidated net profit as compared to the first half of the previous year, due in particular to a substantial increase in net transfer income.
