Sales and annual results of TSG Hoffenheim in the financial years 2016/17 to 2021/22

In 2012, Golf Club St. Leon-Rot Betriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG was replaced by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim Fußball-Spielbetriebs GmbH as the parent company. In the same year, Dietmar Hopp was able to acquire more than 50% of the shares in the GmbH thanks to an exemption from the 50+1 rule and has been the majority owner ever since. Previously, the 50+1 rule did not allow investors to own the majority of shares in a football club to ensure control of the club by fans and members. However, Hopp had already supported the club significantly for at least 20 years, which finally allowed him the exemption.

In 2011, then-CEO of Hannover 96, Martin Kind, filed and won a lawsuit challenging the 50+1 rule, which allows investors to hold a majority stake in Bundesliga clubs if the company is 20 years old before the January 1, 1999 deadline was active in the club.

Since his commitment, Hopp has invested a reported 350 million euros in TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, mainly in the infrastructure such as the stadium, the training center, the office and the youth academy. In contrast to other clubs, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim publishes its annual balance sheet. For the 2019/2020 season, a record result of 229 million euros in sales and a profit of 56 million euros after taxes was recorded.
