Rapid suffers from a lack of audience income
SK Rapid has had the highest number of spectators in the Bundesliga for a long time and is currently losing the most money. However, the stated amounts have not been officially confirmed by any relevant club.
The fund, initiated by the Ministry of Sports under Werner Kogler (Greens), covers the loss of income of the clubs in the areas of ticketing, catering, merchandising and sponsoring due to the Corona laws and regulations.
