VfL Wolfsburg Sits On Top Of List That Shows How Much Bundesliga Teams Spend Per Point

Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg has the highest payroll in the Bundesliga, however, the team's high price tag does not translate into victories, according Marco Plein of FOCUS. German news magazine Focus "compiled a list that shows how much money a club has spent per point ahead of the start of the second hand of the Bundesliga season." For Wolfsburg, the list "is a bitter sight." VfL Wolfsburg tops the list with its €75M ($100.3M) payroll and only 19 points in the first half of the '12-13 season. Meaning each of the 19 points cost Wolfsburg €1.97M ($2.63M). Wolfsburg is followed by Schalke 04, which spent €1.5M ($2M) per point. Third on the list is 1899 Hoffenheim that paid €1.42M ($1.9M) for each of its 12 points, followed by Bayern Munich, which has the highest payroll of all clubs with €112M ($149.8M) and spent €1.33M ($1.78M) per point. Defending champion Borussia Dortmund is one of the more efficient teams in the league with a point price tag of €830,000 ($1.1M). The most-efficient Bundesliga team in regard to price per point ratio is SC Freiburg, which spent only €340,000 ($455,000) on each of its 26 points (FOCUS, 1/14).
