The Question is every year the same. What is included the Budget? If we don't know this nobody can say Team A have xxx and Team B have more or less
The budget of Stuttgart (1.7 million) was mentioned in the local newspaper and confirmed by the sport director of the club. The cost is for personal cost.

I couldn't quite remember the source that Schwerin has 0.5 million more. However, the sport director of Stuttgart mentioned that both Schwerin and Dresden have higher budget. A recent news stated that Schwerin has around 1.5 million budget for 20/21 season, 30% less than this season. It means they had at least 2.1 million for 19/20 season.
