FRANKFURT, Germany — German women's soccer clubs have posted record revenue and losses. A new report on the 2021-22 season reflects heavier investment in the game even before the national team's run to the final of the European Championship brought a dramatic increase in spectator numbers. The 12 clubs in the top-division Frauen-Bundesliga averaged around 1.4 million euros in revenue but made overall losses of around 1.5 million euros. More games were televised in 2021-22 and spectator numbers in stadiums have soared this season since the European Championship.
