I dont think we payed our Allianz Arena debt.
I believe that article is saying that we had a positive 0 for the first time since the Allianz Arena company is established.
Approximate Allianz Arena company revenue is 30mil €...so after that separate company pays the yearly interest + debt payment for the construction the company was always 5-10 mil € in minus...which we had to cover.
But now for the first time that separate company was able to make a revenue that after paying the debt interests they still made a little profit so FC Bayern Munchen E.V. did have to cover the loses.
We must not forget that we bought Munchen 1860`s share for 11mil €...so we are also obligated to pay for their interest payments. So our interest payment doubled. But that is a price of having your own stadium and being a 100% owner:)
That was a huge victory for us even though we now have the whole debt on our shoulders:) But it is worth it as we make much more money than before when we shared grounds.
Maybe I am wrong...
But as I calculated from the previous financial years we are still quite long way to paying all of our Allianz Arena debt.
Construction costs: 346 mil €
- Allianz sponsorship: 90 mil €
- Adidas sponsorship: 78 mil €
+ some interests
= Hopfner said that €163 million of the €346 milllion
sum spent to build the Allianz Arena has been repaid. [that was at last years Annual Meeting]
So we are left with 183 mil €
Hoeness had previously stated that the lion’s share of the Audi cash influx will be used to defray costs associated with the debt incurred on the stadium construction, which published reports estimate at €30 million
So if we were to take 83 mil € out of those 90 mil € from Audi
[until Juli 2011] to pay for our AA debt we would still have around 100 mil €
and with around 30mil € yearly payment for debt + interests [which are already payed for this year I believe] we would be left with 70 mil € next summer.
So I believe we are still in it for few years...I would say until 2015 [at the latest]. So that would be great...to pay out the stadium in less than 10 years
