If you didn’t already know, 2012 was a good year for FC Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga side coached by Jupp Heynckes registered the most successful season in the club’s 113-year history, winning the domestic championship by a record 25 point margin, the DFB Pokal Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

To add to their sporting success, the Bavarians announced record revenue in excess of $580 million for the fiscal year of 2012/13 at the annual general assembly in Munich on Wednesday.

The figure describes total turnover for the FC Bayern München AG group, which is comprised of FC Bayern München AG and their stadium affiliate the Allianz Arena Stadium Ltd., resulting in a record dividend of more than $11 million to split between the company’s shareholders.

With the club again sitting in first place after 12 games this season, the German giants are quickly cementing themselves as one of, if not the finest run business in world club soccer.
