Fugmann new SC President – profit of 9.8 million euros

As already announced in the kicker interview by Executive Board member Oliver Leki, SC Freiburg has not only coped with the corona crisis more than well in terms of sport, but also economically. Leki reported this at the general meeting of the association, at which Eberhard Fugmann was also elected as the new president.

Waldschmidt, Koch and Schwolow poured money into the coffers

Although the stadium had to remain empty last season and the club also had to finance a new stadium building, SC Freiburg successfully concluded the 2020/21 financial year. As SC CFO Oliver Leki reported to the 675 members in the new trade fair in Freiburg at the club’s first general meeting for two years, the sports club even made a profit of 9.8 million euros (previous year: 0.1 million euros) . The transfer income was the reason why the association “got through the crisis so well,” explained Leki. The turnover was 110.1 million euros (89.2 million euros), the transfers from Luca Waldschmidt, Robin Koch and Alexander Schwolow in the past summer with around 37.3 million euros in income contributed to this. The SC’s equity of 93 million euros (83.3 million euros) “expresses the stability of the club, which is exceptional in the situation,” emphasized Leki.

New contracts run until 2024 – Keller successor clarified

The general assembly also elected the former Freiburg school director Eberhard Fugmann as the new president by a large majority. Of the 661 members entitled to vote, only four voted against him, and there were 23 abstentions. Fugmann succeeds Fritz Keller, who resigned because of his move to the DFB in 2019. The chairman of the supervisory board Heinrich Breit also announced that the contracts with the two board members Oliver Leki and Jochen Saier had been extended until 2024.

In view of the changed corona regulation of the Baden-Württemberg state government, which provides for a 2G option model, Leki announced in the general meeting that the club will take advantage of this from the home game against Fürth at the end of October. “We think that’s right in the difficult overall assessment,” he said, because the new Europa-Park Stadium can only be fully occupied. However, Leki would have “wished that this would also have been possible with a PCR test, as in Bavaria”. From the game against Fürth, the 25,000 season tickets awarded should also be valid.
