Their annual financial report will announce both record sales and record profits, German football magazine Kicker reported.

The club's coffers have been boosted by a Champions League run which took them to the final and the sale of star player Mario Götze to Bayern Munich for €37 million.

Last year, Dortmund posted sales of €215.2 million and a net profit of €34.3 million.

The biggest single source of revenue came from Dortmund reaching May's

Champions League final, when they lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich at Wembley, which brought in €54 million.

Borussia also received €12 million euros for their six home games in the competition.

As the Bundesliga's only publicly traded club on the German stock market, the Borussia Dortmund company paid shareholders a dividend for the first time last year of six cents per share.
