The figure is in euro's so it's about $16.3k. Not too bad for a team in a country getting hit hard by the economic crisis and with a culture of buying knock-off hockey merchandise. He also said that they made 25,000 euro's in merchandise sale during the two games they played in Finland. Not bad considering they only had combined attendance of about 4,000. Where they've really lucked out is in the local support. Last I heard they we're third in attendance, and they have the most expensive tickets in the league. With their low payroll (third or fourth lowest in the league), they should be one of the few teams turning a profit. Now if only they'd open a web shop and ship internationally, I know many people who want to get some Dinamo merch for Christmas.
