Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart revealed it "made a small profit" after its '11 balance sheet was unveiled at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena on Tuesday, according to the DPA. The club generated €117M ($141M) in revenue, and took home a profit of €71,000 ($84,000) in '11. In '10, Stuttgart generated a slightly higher revenue of €118M ($142M), but suffered a loss of €2.2M ($2.6M). VfB Stuttgart President Gerd Mäuser said, "We are financially in good shape."
