Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade have announced their budget for the upcoming season.

Team president Nebojsa Covic revealed to a local news channel, Prva, that his team will have around 5.1 million at their disposal during the 2021-22 campaign.

It is reported that the size of Crvena Zvezda's wallet will remain almost the same size as last season, when the team's budget shrunk by around 30% due to the pandemic - from 8 to 5 million euros.

"Expenses are intended not only for players but also for managers, accommodation, and car allocation," Covic said. "Under the Sports Act, we must have an employment and compensation contract. Everyone has certain obligations to the state. We also owe about 30 million dinars (approx. €250 thousand) in VAT, but that is a consequence of COVID-19. We have tried to talk to the tax administration about it, and we are still waiting for their decision."

In comparison, Crvena Zvezda's rivals, Partizan NIS Belgrade, will have a €6 million budget in the upcoming season, according to team president Ostoja Mijailovic.

Crvena Zvezda will compete in the EuroLeague next season, while Partizan will attempt to advance to the strongest European competition through the EuroCup.
